Vast majority of Vista 7 “sales” are licence write-offs and Microsoft tries to convince people to shop for Vista 7, not be forced to get it with a new PC
THE reality behind Vista 7 was never pretty. In many ways it mirrored Windows Vista, which actually seems to have brought more money in its time. Based on news headlines which were published in two weeks (filtered based on occurrences in the headlines), articles about “Vista” were pretty much none. There was this one article about 64-bit Windows (Vista and Vista 7 included) being targeted by a new rootkit. We mentioned it in the previous post and it’s not really about Vista 7. When it comes to Vista 7 headlines, all we found was hype about discounts. These were not “discounts” per se but some words about implicit discounts (“Family Pack”), which help show that adoption has been poor and Microsoft tries to change this (it’s just bundling that worked, i.e. forced sales).
