a million dollars

Slashdot is running this story about how Microshaft is planning to spend $100 MILLION (or for those of you who see numbers better – that’s $100,000,000) on marketing for Windows Vista. Now I don’t know how many copies of XP that they’ve sold and I don’t know how many copies of Vista they should expect to sell either, but seriously, don’t you think if they would sell MORE copies to those on the fence of upgrading if they saved their $100 million marketing budget and use those savings to lower the per copy cost of Vista?
