...just today, according to the NPD groups' weekly tracking service, Windows 7 software unit sales in the U.S. increased 234% over Windows Vista's first few days of sales.

no you couldn't install vista on your 8 year old computer and expect it to run as fast as your 8 year old OS on your 8 year old computer.
vista was made for more modern hardware, and if you didn't have it you shouldn't be running it.
I guess with w7 MS decided to keep those people at bay this time by making 7 more friendly to slower hardware.
