244 Copies of Vista Sold In China

No missing zeros in the title. After 2 weeks in the Chinese market, Windows Vista managed to sell only 244 copies.

Microsoft has spent Millions on Windows Vista marketing in China. They even threw up a Windows Vista ad on the 421 meter high Jin Mao tower in Shanghai China (picture available in the screens tab).

Some sources blame Piracy for the aforementioned sales failure. Pirated versions of Vista are available easily on the Chinese streets for a mere $1. Pictures of the $1 pirated Vista packages are available in the screens tab.

244 Copies of Vista Sold In China

AHAHAHAHAHAHTo quote myself from a different board and in respons to Anonymousat 0:14 21/4/2007:"I use both Vista and XP. ATM I use vista if I want a clutter free, stable OS, and I use XP when I want to play most of the games/programs that do not work well, or work at all on my system. That will change with updates and more RAM however, and then I will figuratively throw XP in the trash where it belongs."

To the idiot far below me the Chinese are anything but poor, they are at the top of the economy right now like we were in the 80s and have lent considerable money to the US in bonds. They do not even have a real military to spend money on. And you wonder why you see buses full of asian turists?
