DSG, owner of currys and pc world has been left with lots of unsold pcs which it stocked in anticipation of a rush for Vista loaded/capable hardware.
Sadly the rush hasn’t materialised leaving DSG blaming Microsoft for a weak ad campaign.
Perhaps most people with a PC have decided the one they have works well enough, and not badly enough to warrant shelling out £500ish for a new one. Or perhaps their dosh is better spent on a Wii, PS/3 or the like.
Either way, new operating systems used to promise a bonanza all round for software & hardware firms. What will they do now – have to offer better features perhaps? Or could web apps eg web mail actually be sufficient for many people’s basic needs?
