Default More Evidence That XP is Vista's Main Competitor

Computerworld is reporting that Windows XP Service Pack 3 runs MS Office 10% faster than XP SP2 — and is 'considerably faster' than Vista SP1. XP SP3 isn't scheduled to be released until next year, but testers at Devil Mountain Software — the same company which found Vista SP 1 to be hardly any faster than the debut version of Vista — were able to run some benchmarking tests on a release candidate of XP SP3, says the report. While this may be great news for XP owners, it is a problem for Microsoft, which is having trouble convincing business users to migrate to Vista.

The fact the matter is most businesses purchase upgrade plan and paying for it on annual basis with or without new OS or office apps from MS. The lack of Vista sales to corporations affects some revenue and not a much as all the rumors. I like to hear more from IT Managers with budget responsibility to get into the act here more often.
True Vista is not performing as well as it ought to be.
