The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: An easier upgrade to Vista is foreseen

The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: An easier upgrade to Vista is foreseen: "With previous Windows operating systems, fewer than 10 percent actually upgrade their PC to the next version, said Greg Sullivan, group product manager with Windows Marketing Communications.
'The vast majority get their copy of Windows on a new PC, or through a volume licensing agreement,' he said.
Still, Microsoft has upgraded versions of its operating systems to serve the technology enthusiasts who want to put a new version on an old machine. Even though it's a small market, this group is strategically important to the company, Sullivan said, because they influence their friends and associates."
