Intel backstabs Microsoft...


According to New York Times; Intel has decided not to upgrade its computers to 80,000Windows Vista. This sure must be bitter news to Microsoft. Microsoft might have made a wrong move which might be irreversible by launching the super-slow, bloated, ill-fated "junk PC". According to Times Reports:

"The company made its decision after a lengthy analysis by its internal technology staff of the costs and potential benefits of moving to Windows Vista, which has drawn fire from many customers as a buggy, bloated program that requires costly hardware upgrades to run smoothly."

Microsoft specially and specifically launched the "Vista capable PC" scheme to help Intel meet its quarterly earnings by selling older Intel chipsets that couldn't run Windows Vista properly.

For now, Windows 7 might be Microsoft's only hope.
