Dell Computer began taking orders for Windows Vista systems this weekend. The first reports are in.

So far, according to CEO Kevin Rollins -- one of the guest speakers at Microsoft's Vista launch kick-off lunch on January 29 in New York:

*Dell saw a 20 percent increase in Web traffic

* 100 percent of its new consumer orders were for Vista machines

* Dell sold "tens of thousands of copies" of Vista out of the chute

Do you think the momentum will continue? Will Microsoft deliver on CEO Steve Ballmer's projections that Vista sales will outpace Windows 95's by a factor of five and double Windows XP's uptake in the first few months that it is available?
