Submission + - Pirates Blamed for Low Vista Sales

Toxicgonzo writes: In a recent conference call, Steve Ballmer admits the sales forecast for Vista had been "overly optimistic". He explained the slow sales by saying, "Piracy reduction can be a source of Windows revenue growth, and I think we'll make some piracy improvements this year." He plans to "dial-up" anti-piracy measures with a tougher version of Windows Genuine Advantage. Also, he promises Microsoft "..won't go five years ... between big Windows releases."
