Vista: Over 60 Million Served?

Microsoft is crowing about Vista sales, and for any other vendor, 60 million sold would be truly huge. But this is Microsoft we're talking about, and it's held to a higher standard.

With an installed base of Windows rounding about a billion, 60 mil is a drop in the PC bucket. And the 60 million figure itself is taking some heat, with critics pointing out that not all of these licenses are actually in use.

Still, I wouldn't mind being in Microsoft's shoes. Thick client PCs are still the main way we compute, and nothing -- not Linux nor the Mac nor Google -- is currently posing a serious threat.

Have you found any good resources about Vista compatibility? Let us in on them by writing dbarney@redmondmag.com.
