1. Rid Vista of the backward compatability. Cut away the fat.
Can't do that. Backward compatibility is probably the #1 reason for Microsoft and Windows' success. Losing that would be a sure way to kill Vista. Customers would keep their old versions of Windows, or start using Wine.

Just imagine how upset everyone would be if they needed to buy all new software every time Windows was updated.
