Gianfranco Lanci, the boss of Acer, claims in an interview with Financial Times Deutschland that the entire industry is disappointed by Microsoft's Windows Vista.
Never before had a new version of Windows done so little to boost PC sales.

"And that's not going to change in the second half of this year," Lanci said.

"I really don't think that someone has bought a new PC specifically for Vista," he added.

Microsoft's operating system commands a market share of around 90 percent, with Apple and Linux accounting for the rest.

While the industry had waited for years for Vista, the software was not really ready when it was launched to great pomp at the start of this year, Lanci complained.

"Stability is certainly a problem," he said.
