Intel says hasta la vista

Microsoft has tried long and hard to explain its misunderstood operating system, Windows Vista.

Here at HEXUS, we're adamant that Windows Vista just isn't as bad as widespread reports would have you believe. Try telling that to Intel, though.

According to The New York Times, a person with direct knowledge of Intel's plans said that the world's largest semiconductor manufacturer has decided against deploying Windows Vista on its internal systems.

"This isn’t a matter of dissing Microsoft, but Intel information technology staff just found no compelling case for adopting Vista," the person said.

Well, if that isn't a diss, we don't know what is. Ouch.

Why should Intel adopt Vista on their internal systems if they see no benefit from it?

NASA are still using Fedora Core 4, although they are upgrading it soon by the looks of it.

Why change something that does its job? More so if its going to cost money?
Its not just the cost of the OS either, but I'd imagine Intels network / systems to be fairly none mainstream. The testing involved would probably be huge.
Ouch that's got a to sting.
I don't blame them, Vista is still the Augustus Gloop of operating systems and it doesn't look like it is going to get any gastric banding any time soon.

the saying comes to mind, if it aint broke dont fix it.
Vista will still be fairly abundant within Intel where development takes place.

But I guess other staff will stay with XP.
