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".

So what you are saying is that Vista sucks now and people that have payed a bucket of money for it should wait up to two years on the hope that it will get better.

I'm not saying people should do anything, I'm just pointing out that in my experiences windows releases need time to mature and vista is no exception.

Or you could look at the alternatives, such as downloading a Free CD of the internet and seeing whether it works well with your hardware and satisfies your needs.

I know a few people doing just that, I looked at moving to a non windows platform on all my machines but at this time its not feasible with the work I do.

For the first time there are some great alternatives to running windows that really deliver. I advocate trying out other options to everyone I know and have no problem telling someone the cons and pros that I see with each one.

If it doesn't, you can also try it again every six months and see if it really improves and all of this will cost you nothing.

So what you are saying is that alternatives suck now and people that value their time should install a different OS every six months in hopes that it will get better.
