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".

I'm really damned glad that Apple seem to understand this with Leopard - one version, PPC, x86, 32-bit & 64-bit all on one disc.

They've got two advantages working for them.

One, the media is DVD instead of CD (which until Tiger was the norm) so they've got at least 4.7Gb to hold it.

Two, the executable format (Mach) is multi-arch by design and has been since Steve Jobs was running NeXT, so technically the disc only needs one installer app.
