"While we think the [Vista] marketing campaign will attract people, we donít see enough there to attract a mass movement or a big growth spurt," said George Shiffler, a Gartner research director. "We donít think it will encourage enough people to replace [their PCs] right then and there."
On a more personal note, while I have been following the latest developments of Vista, I have to admit that enthusiasm has dried up a bit for me and I can perceive the same among the community. The fact that Vista was first touted as revolutionary, and now it seems nothing more than a revamped version of the same old Windows experience is certainly not going to do much in Microsoft's favor.
Finally, if you look at our latest user poll you will see that a wide majority of users have voted they won't be upgrading to Vista anytime soon, with only 10% willing to buy it inmediately, and another 10% saying they will likely get it bundled after buying a new PC.
