Microsoft Australia installing new PC's just to run Vista

News poster Spy has had an interesting conversation with a Microsoft product support specialist in Australia over the phone. When asked whether the representative was using Windows Vista, the man surprisingly replied he wasn't. Possibly even more shocking is the reason. It seems the company is installing the Ultimate Edition of Microsoft's latest operating system the next day, as the new computers to run it have recently arrived. What kind of example is this setting for Microsoft's customers? "Don't bother with Vista unless you have, or are willing to purchase, a brand new computer." So much for the minimum requirements for Vista! Of course, it is Ultimate (what's wrong with Enterprise?) which is a bit more resource-intensive and it is entirely possible that the last PC upgrade was 5 years ago, when XP was released, meaning that an upgrade is simply the logical move.
