While its hardware support for Vista continues, Intel will not adopt Vista at its facilities, according to reports; Microsoft extends XP support to 2014

Intel, the world's largest microprocessor manufacturer, has stuck with operating system maker Microsoft through good times and bad. The pair have worked closely together one every modern Windows release and have even shared some common unpleasant experiences -- like being subjected to Federal Trade Commission investigations.

However, times have changed and suddenly, according to inside reports Intel has shockingly snubbed Microsoft's flagship product, Windows Vista. Intel, which has over 80,000 employees with workstations, will not change its computers over to Vista. This marks the first time that Intel would have bypassed a major Windows generation, if the reports from the key inside source hold true.

Intel will need to use ATi or nVidia graphics to upgrade to Vista. How embarrassing is that?
