Vista Upgrades to the Tune of $13.5 Billion -- What a Deal!
ROI guru Ian Campbell of Nucleus Research did some simple math the other day
and calculated that if only one-fourth of XP users upgrade their machines to
Vista, the overall cost would be $13.5 billion (I'm not sure if Campbell rounded
up or down).
compares this unfavorably to Jamaica, which has a gross national product
of just $12.2 billion.
I prefer to think of Steve Ballmer, who, with $13.6 billion, could pay for
all these upgrades and still have $100 million to spend on Xboxes for needy
