Submission + - Australian State snubs Vista for XP

john_chr writes: Talk about new desktop operating systems may be at an all-time high, but the Queensland state government has no intention to progress from the six-year-old Windows XP for more than 100,000 computers to be purchased over the next three years — so says Computerworld.

Linux stands a better chance in the Server Room, but on the desktop "some departments may have to buy Vista licences and "downgrade" to XP "
