Vista semakin ditinggalkan

More than one in every three new PCs is downgraded from Windows Vista to the older Windows XP, either at the factory or by the buyer.

    Salam kenal pak…
    blog yang bagus dan saya kelihatannya akan sering bertandang ke sini bila diijinkan.

  2. waktu meluncurkan vista, microsoft mengira mereka masih jaya seperti dulu…leading the future, mereka mengira setiap kali produk baru mereka akan langsung diburu orang. yang enggak lah! karena beli vista artinya membuang komputer lama kita dan membeli yg baru krn kebutuhan resource vista itu gede banget. Daripada pasang vista mending bertahan di xp.🙂
