Windows Technologizer has an interesting article about why Windows Vista failed, and it provides 16 reasons why this is the case. A few of those reasons reveal a certain lack of understanding, but a more pressing issue is that while listing these reasons individually is interesting, Vista's failure in the marketplace can be explained in a much more compact fashion.

I'd agree about the KDE functionality spanking only IF you were talking about KDE 3.5

The 4 Series stripped out SO MUCH functionality that KDE 3.5 contained. And that's the original point the poster was trying to make. Windows Vista didn;'t deliver where XP had thrived (in some casess breaking previously working functionality). Likewise KDE 4 broke/didn't include a lot of the functionality KDE 3.5 had.

4.3 doesn't come close to the customization options 3.5 had. When the 4 series finally "catches up" with 3.5 let me know. Then and only then I might come back. Til then I'll keep enjoying E17 with ecomorph.
