It has nothing to do with them not having any hope for Vista.
if you look at the old releases, it was always this way. tbh, the large time gap between XP and Vista probably contributed to the initial lack of adoption of Vista. everyone cried "it's such an unnecessary release, youre forcing it down our throats." but if you look at windows 95, 98, and ME, theyre practically all the same thing lol. (except ME was a giant POS lol)
