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".

"A new version of Widows comes out with fanfare and dancing icons. Most people want to stay abreast, so they buy an upgrade copy of Windows and upgrade their PC. But the new version is always designed to perform poorly on older hardware, so everyone suddenly notices how old and outdated there PC is and so they go buy a new PC, including another copy of the new version of Windows. "

Most people get Windows with a new PC anyway. Most of the normal users I know who have upgraded Windows have "borrowed" the new version from work or a friend. Then they complain about how it runs and they buy a new PC, or go back to what they had. I don't know if that's true everywhere, but it seems pretty common.
