Microsoft has always depended on their new software only supporting their current OS, so that anyone who wanted to get the MANY bugs fixed would have to upgrade the OS as well as the program. This has been the history with all versions of office, until recently: M$ Office both 2k and XP work fine on Win2k and WinME, and Win2K is more than stable enough to satisfy the needs of businesses, so on the proffesional end their old strategy does not work this time. I believe that few businesses will upgrade, and only curious home users currently stuck with ME will upgrade, so most sales of XP will be on new computers. Since PC sales everywhere are still falling, this is going to present a problem for M$. I think that since nobody needs XP, people will start actually looking at other OS's based on what they think they'd be most comfortable using, which could mean greater market share for appleOriginally posted by fryke
What is the main selling point of XP, now that Win2K is so stable? (It IS stable, believe me.) Nobody would pay for upgrades if you can keep the old one that runs fine.
