The failure of Linux continue to become apparent when you compare the programming models and tools between Vista and Linux.

Not only is XGL totally unstable, but it doesn't change anything at the higher level that application developers use.

Most of the Unix guys have moved on to OSX after all the years of failure on desktop linux. It was a nice experiment, but now it's over, and wobbly windows don't cover up linux failures.

What is it, exactly, that Vista supplies that XGL and Linux doesn't? Details, please...
