Microsoft starts Vista hard sell

  The Brigadier 11:17 30 Jan 2007

Microsoft has launched its latest version of Windows, called Vista, with more than 100m computers predicted to be using it worldwide within 12 months.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates called the launch a "big day" that would bring a new digital workstyle and lifestyle. The new operating system (OS) boasts an improved interface and security tools.

But not all PCs will be able to run Vista - Microsoft recommends machines have at least 512Mb of RAM, a 800Mhz processor and 15Gb of hard disk space. Microsoft has pledged to continue support for XP users until 2011.

The click here didn't work properly- go to the QVC home page and click on Windows Vista - be quick, I don't think it will be there very long.
