Microsoft: Vista Can ‘Massively’ Reduce Carbon Emissions

Microsoft has commissioned a report which claims the new power-management features in Vista can help companies “massively” reduce carbon emissions resulting from the use of desktop PCs, ZDNet UK reports.

The study, which compared energy usage between Windows XP and Windows Vista, revealed that the new operating system could help reduce the carbon dioxide generated by a 200-desktop organization by 45 tons per year.

Green campaigners have criticized Vista as they claim that the hardware upgrades required to make use of the operating system’s enhanced functionality will lead to thousands of perfectly serviceable XP machines being decommissioned.

A Softchoice survey has claimed that Vista will be the most power-hungry Windows desktop so far. It also showed that of 113,000 desktops checked from over 400 US organisations, 50 percent of the machines wouldn’t be able to meet the basic Vista requirements.
