Microsoft has conducted an experiment aimed at shattering what it claims are false perceptions of Vista, exacerbated by lies from the competition and comments from people which it suggests have never used the operating system before, yet spread rumours.

In a move more reminiscent of popular MTV television program Punk'd, Microsoft will release details of its experiment later today which saw the firm put 120 users of various operating systems including Linux, Mac, Windows XP and Windows 2000 and told them – via a computer salesperson – that they were being demonstrated the next generation of Windows – Mojave.

What Microsoft didn't tell them is that what they were actually using was Windows Vista, in an attempt to shatter some of the myths surrounding the operating system. Microsoft is hopeful that the results will show that many of the misconceptions around Vista are just that: wrong.
