Vista So Distasteful, Even Pirates Won't Steal It


Despite Microsoft's charmingest attempts to promote Vista (witty subsites, banner gymnastics), the evidence betrays a sad truth: nobody wants it.

Not even pirates.

But facing news that Vista counterfeit rates are estimated at half those of Windows XP's, Microsoft plays the ignorant housewife: Pirates' refusal to touch the goods is due to Vista's "proven and effective" authentication system!

Oh, of course.

Countless? I count... 1. Really, you're quite alone in your opinion. Vista is really despised (and often abandoned) by the majority of the people who have had to use it. This extends across both the technical community and the general population. But it's nice to hear you're happy with it.
