Microsoft Flops and Loses 7% of the Browser Market in Last 12 Months - Vista Still Only Used by Less Than 15% of all Users, per Janco
As long as Microsoft keeps making software that is less functional that previous versions, they can expect a continued downslide. I switched to Firefox after IE 7 came out and gave me problems. I never saw a reason to try IE 7 again.
I have VISTA on my new computer but find it much more awkward to use than Windows XP and would go back to Windows XP is I wasn't so lazy. At my work virtually everyone has a computer on their desk (200-300 computers, maybe more). They all run XP except for an occasional Mac or Unix based machine.
I may go Mac next time. I am, in the meantime finding out all I can about the different Linux derivatives, to see what is available software wise. If i can do all i wish to do with a PC clone WITHOUT and Microsoft products, I'll go that way for sure.
I could spew for hours about the troubled Microsoft has been to me since Windows 95 came out, and every op-sys they've produced since. Just thinking about it leaves me needing a Bud. Sorry for the rant.
