Half of PCs won't run Vista

http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1895,2068351,00.asp

I can believe it.  I've been running Vista on a system that is about 2.5 years old.  Its not horribly slow, but its not lightening fast either.  I tend to buy highend systems when I plunk my money down, but I can imaging lots of issues with people that don't follow that paradigm.

Last week I have bought a new laptop which is in the $3,000 price range. The manufacturer claimed it is Windows Vista ready. Since I have access to the MSDN downloads the first thing I did was install Windows Vista and indeed it could find all drivers except for the drivers for the GeForce Go 7950GTX graphics card and my built-in wireless device. I could install the drivers for my graphics card by using the one for drivers targetting Windows XP. But then, for me propably one of the most important devices, my wi-fi device, there are no drivers. It is a Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG module and looking at the web site from Intel these drivers will be available somewhere in June/July 2007 which I find kinda messed up!
