Hmm, just seems odd as Microsoft isn't a direct sales company, very high percentage of sales to customers it is through "middle men" retailers (even OEM is sold to Dell, etc, then sold to the customer)... even their licensing is through second parties. Although they are making a push with their new ...

Should of responded "Well if Vista sucked so bad, why did they make a clone and call it Windows 7".
