Type, Computer

They are the eevil empire after all...

A horrible thought struck me this morning:
What if Microsoft intentionally made Vista so bloated and resource-hogging in order to sell Windows 7? Perhaps it was never meant to be good, only to sell to the mindless "must upgrade" crowd and the people who just buy whatever computer they get in the nearest shop? Yes, they lost a couple percent market share to Apple, but they get a frenzy of positive PR for W7, and it may be their last chance to pull off that feint while they still have a near-monopoly.
