Windows When Vista was released, and the first reviews started to trickle in, it became apparent that Vista was a massive release - not only in terms of money spent on it by Microsoft and the amount of promotion, but also the operating system itself. It was huge, and it felt as such too. Despite what many have been saying the past year, Vista is, in fact, much more than just XP with a new theme. Basically every framework and feature has been rewritten, lots of new ones have been added, and, according to some, the process of modularisation has started with Vista (and Server 2008). It may come as no surprise that all these changes resulted in a whole boatload of bugs and breakage, which led many people to conclude that Vista was simply not as "done" as it should have been when released. Steve Ballmer confirmed these sentiments in a speech at Microsoft's Most Valuable Professionals conference in Seattle.

I must totally agree.

Hey, my dear fellow linuxians - isn't that Linux is also "work in progress"?

Isn't true that every PC / Mac / whatever (Amiga PPC? ;-) ) computer user on this planet AT LEAST heard of Linux, and many of them saw / tried it?

Why then 95% of the "computer user population" won't mind about changing "their" OS to Linux, despite it is free and - according to some - so perfect and flawless?

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that those 95% of "computer users" has better things to do in life, than full time sudy of the man pages?
