A meaningless statistic?
"Microsoft claimed more than 180m Windows Vista licenses have now been sold, up 40m from the last official figure."
OK so they managed to "sell" 40m "licences" I am willing to bet that the majority of those "sales" were via equipment manufacturers and that a lot of the kit the licence was "sold" for are actually not running Vista.
Now i actually use Vista out of choice, I paid for the thing for gods sake. I (personally) find it to be faster and more stable than my old XP install. Then again I dont do any wierd or out of the ordinary stuff on my PC so I have never had any issues with all the DRM stuff that most people complain about
