Intel's decided to stick with Windows XP, skipping Vista until the next edition of Windows comes steaming out of Ballmer's pores. The Inquirer's Charlie Demerjian sums up the issue:
"When a company as tech savvy as Intel, with full source code access and having written several large chunks of the OS, says get stuffed, you know you have a problem. Well, everyone knows MS has a problem, but it is nice to see it codified in such a black and white way though. Reassuring, like a warm cup of tea, or a public kick to the corporate crown jewels.
His conclusion: "Intel is not going to use Vista on its corporate machines... ever."
