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".

"2) "Genuine" Licensing"

Joe User doesn't care.

"3) Vista is NOT UNIX."

Joe User certainly doesn't care.

"5) Resource Hog!"

"6) Wasted screen real estate."

"7) Windows Registry."

Joe User doesn't care.

Your points have merit...from a technical point of view.
However, whether Vista will be a consumer hit or not have little to do with it's technical merits (or lack thereof).
It's all about marketing and pre-installation.
We can make good technical arguments against Vista all day but in the end it wont matter because Joe User will use whatever his computer came with, what is in the ads he has seen or what the sales person says he should use.
