Default Microsoft looks to 'Mojave' to revive Vista's image

After months of searching for ways to defend its oft-maligned Windows operating system, Microsoft may just have found its best weapon: Vista's skeptics.

Spurred by an e-mail from someone deep in the marketing ranks, Microsoft last week traveled to San Francisco, rounding up Windows XP users who had negative impressions of Vista. The subjects were put on video, asked about their Vista impressions, and then shown a "new" operating system, code-named Mojave. More than 90 percent gave positive feedback on what they saw. Then they were told that "Mojave" was actually Windows Vista.

issue is that Home users don't have a choice if they buy a new PC from Dell/HP/OEM as they all come with Vista.
For businesses Vista still remains a poor upgrade as it lacks the necessary features to make an upgrade worth the time and cost.

I had a very positive view of Vista.... until I actually tried to use it. Then my opinion turned negative... so I don't think this would work to well on me. Not to mention I'd know Mojave was Vista soon as I tried to use it.
