Breaking News! Or Rumor?

I was calling around to some computer repair places today to see about getting my laptop fixed (turns out it'd be cheaper just to buy a new one. Ugh!). One of places I called is a certified Dell dealer and technician. He told me that Microsoft is discontinuing Vista and that if I do decide to buy a new machine to make sure it comes with XP installed on it. He said that there have been so many complaints about Vista, so many people reverting back to XP, and that Vista was flawed before the first one was ever shipped out of the warehouse. Has anyone else heard anything about this? The discontinuation not the complaints, lol. If so, it makes me really happy that the mister and I decided to wait before upgrading.


  1. Wow, I haven't heard anything about Vista being discontinued, and I'm kind of a tech info junkie. I think that's a rumor. Although it IS definitely a truth that Vista sucks. Totally regret upgrading my hubby's computer to Vista, and so glad I still have XP on my work laptop.

  2. I haven't heard this tidbit anywhere else either which makes me lean towards it being a rumor. You'd think that if Microsoft were recalling Vista it'd be on the news and stuff cuz you know how everyone likes to bash Microsoft.


I love comments. Leave me one. Now.
