Windows According to at least one blogger, Microsoft should abandon Vista before it's too late. It would appear he's not alone in this opinion, as Microsoft has begun allowing users to downgrade back to XP. Amongst the reasons? Poor sales figures and shoddy Vista "Extras".

All I can say is that during this past year, Vista has really improved across the board on my laptop. File copy operations do no longer stall the system, it boots faster, it shuts down faster, those sorts of things. I'm sure SP1 will address even more of these general concerns. SP2 will follow later, which will not only bring fixes, but also some new features. By that time, Microsoft will be releasing tidbits of info on Vienna, and the blog people will be all over Microsoft, saying "Vista is good enough", "the new features in Vienna aren't worth it", and "Vienna is just Vista with a new coat".

In other words, just like XP. People are so predictable.
