Vista XP will be SP1 for Vista!

If this is true - click here - then many satisfied Vista users are going to be a bit miffed, unless they forego this service pack, that is. I wondered if the Forum Editor had any news on this surprising turn-around. TC.

link is far more credible.

Well, it seems I've been spoofed alright but I'm not the only one - click here I was expecting some world-wide furore if it had been true, :o) TC.

You really didn't think this was true did you?

Look at the last paragraph "Elston also added that if people complain too much they'll just revert to Windows ME. "

The next stage I suppose if they keep complaining would be either Win98 or going the whole hog and put them back to 3.11.

is in this:

"We can move people off of Vista development now, and move them to Windows 7 development," said Elston. "That should allow us to only delay Windows 7 by thirteen months past its scheduled date instead of the planned eighteen."

Nobody at that kind of senior level in Microsoft would say "off of" - at least I hope not.

' "We're focused on giving the customer what they want, and want they want is to just go back to XP," said Microsoft Development Chief Greg Elston. '

Lot of wanting in there. I am sure those who write the speeches for Microsoft have either good grammar or use software to proof it.

the story above actually has some part truth in it. I feel somewhat vindicated now. :o) TC. click here

with all the back peddling by ms re vista and xp over the last week time is right for a good price reduction to get sales of vista going.

I'd always assumed that "off of" was correct American English.
