Steve Ballmer has said in an interview that one of the biggest hurdles to the acceptance of Windows Vista is Windows XP:
Steve Ballmer, interviewed by the San Jose Mercury News, said Windows XP had a lot of "happy users" and it will be a challenge to get them to buy a new PC or upgrade the OS.
But the interview also reveals that Ballmer hopes it will inject new life into the PC industry. He said Vista will be a "boon" for PC manufacturers. Graphics card makers like Nvidia and ATI certainly hope so, that's for sure.
