When two is a crowd, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP will suffocate the market, with all three operating systems available concomitantly, albeit XP will be the most handicapped of the three, but still up for grabs, and even available through downgrade options. When it launched Vista, Microsoft told customers that it was time to get off XP. When it offered Service Pack 1 for Vista, the Redmond company gave the market, perhaps the first time with Vista, an actual alternative to XP. The release of SP3 in 2008 did nothing for the soon to be decade-old operating system, although it was long overdue following the launch of XP SP2 in 2004. With Windows 7 on the horizon expect a reinvigorated “get off XP” refrain.
