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.

Vista has worked fine for me! I find it to be both faster and more stable then XP.

I love the fact that most of the people that complain about Vista say it is just to big. Did I miss something? The cost of drives are way down and people complain that it may have a 20gig footprint... LOL... And a 500gig drive is how much? Get over it!

Then there are those that complain about the UAC. I am an advanced user and I leave it on. It does not get in my way but does give me the assurance that nothing is going to install without me saying allow. And this is a problem why?

People just wanted a reason to gripe.. Did not fit into what most people considered to be uber.

For me it runs way faster the XP. There is nothing really in 7 that makes it a must have. Of course I am a geek and to feed that inner geek I will more then likely buy it. But my reasons will not because I hate Vista for this reason or that.
