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.

Alert:
Could Microsoft have been working on longhorn and then delivered vista as a test before the actual release of longhorn happened. I think they may have. I use vista and its stood by me through some really bad times, raid broke, page file drive lost, disk instability, overheating cards, etc. I think i like vista because it grew on me. But can it be so that win 7 was the actual longhorn. Hmm!
