Windows ITWire: "Linux users can, at times, be the worst kind of ingrates, whining and complaining about what they perceive as missing features in a free operating system. My advice to all such whingers: spend 10 days using the latest version of Windows and you'll realise that you are living in a world of relative bliss."

My question exactly

I've been asking myself and arguing about this question since it came out. A huge company like Microsoft should have enough resources and better plan to develop faster and better, yet Vista still has that beta feeling: things don't work, it's slow, why it restarts twice for new nvidia driver install is beyond me, why it takes about a minute to connect to my router is also weird (no problems with any XP/linux/osx machine in the house), ... I also don't understand why it'll take another year for first pack of fixes, sometimes I wonder if there are only 3 people or so working on this OS? I wouldn't even find all this weird, but seeing the extremely fast development on linux and osx front, what's up with Microsoft? Maybe they should spend less resources and time on useless "inventions" and software we all know either won't succeed or will be abandoned again when they reach a certain market share? Microsoft still has a chance to fix their image and quality, but more and more I doubt in that. But that's just my 2 cents.
