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".

Do you really think that Microsoft would do such a thing when they employ one of the main architects of VMS who moved on from Digital to Microsoft to create WNT with his team of developers?

This is a serious case of wanting to be different at all costs, in fact it's just a modern version of UNIX vs VMS. Before Microsoft would ever do this they'd have him and other senior developers create a new operating system instead, WNT the next generation. There is no UNIX in Microsoft's future.
