PEOPLE STILL want Windows XP, the chairman of Asustek told the Taipei Times.

Jonney Shih said that Asustek is disappointed in sales of Vista and people are still bothered about software compatibility of Microsoft products.

The same article quotes an analyst as saying that when Microsoft fixes technical problems in Vista, sales in the second half of this year will improve.

And the president of Acer, Gianfranco Lanci, said Vista wasn't proving a lure for people to buy new computers. Luca said people will buy Vista when they buy new machines. µ
