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 very much agree with you on this, in my opinion Microsoft should have included a decent non transparent theme for win 7 and preserve Aero basic and "Vista" Aero just as a second option.

At first sight i thought that Aero was "pretty", but after a week using it every day it becomes just a lot of transparent windows all over the place with no usability advantage.

I really think Win7 is a good OS so far but the included themes are annoying for every day use.
