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".

Because 5 years is too much for an os release cycle ? But XP happy ending doesn't mean that Vista one will be.

And i agree that fresh installs of XP are good, but the overall problem is that the os setup quality decrease with time, from slowly for a good level user to incredibly fast for a poor level user. And poor user does not know what 'format' and 'reinstall' mean.

To compare with mac os x, or even linux (i agree that a poor skilled user won't be able to do as much things he could in XP or Mac os x), a poor skilled user may not alter the system as fast as he will do under XP.
