Hardware, Embedded Systems Dell has taken the unusual step - for a PC vendor of its size - of toning down its sales pitch for Microsoft's Vista operating system and warning businesses of the migration challenges that lie ahead for them. The step is particularly unusual because one of the issues the hardware vendor is warning business about is the extra hardware they will need to buy.

I doesn't matter if it's Microsoft's or the hardware vendors' fault. People want something that works. This isn't an attack on either but someone has to take responsibility and must be held accountable.

I would agree with you, however, I notice that if a driver for Linux is either missing altogether or incomplete, people are quick to point the finger at the hardware vendor. But when the same scenario happens under Vista, some of these same people will scream that it's all Microsoft's fault.

Frankly, I believe it is the fault of the hardware vendors in both cases. Btu in the end, if stuff doesn't work, then the reason really doesn't matter as far as in end user is concerned. It either works or it doesn't. If it doesn't, then somebody needs to fix it.
