PC maker Acer is not too happy with Microsoft. Its chairman, J.T. Wang, has revised the company's forecasted profits for computer sales this year, blaming Windows Vista's unsatisfactory software compatibility, according to a piece at the INQUIRER. The new forecasts call for 30 percent up to 40 percent growth, as opposed to upwards of 40 percent previously predicted. (2006's 14 million PCs shipped by the firm represented 39 percent growth.)
Wang told shareholders that he remains optimistic about shipment growth, but that Vista needs more time to gain its foothold among consumers than he originally believed, says this Forbes piece.
