Windows Forbes takes a look at Vista, and writes: "More than five years in the making, more than 50 million lines of code. The result? A vista slightly more inspiring than the one over the town dump. The new slogan is: 'The Wow Starts Now', and Microsoft touts new features, many filched shamelessly from Apple's Macintosh. But as with every previous version, there's no wow here, not even in ironic quotes. Vista is at best mildly annoying and at worst makes you want to rush to Redmond, Wash. and rip somebody's liver out." They also look at Office 2007.

Actually... no, I can't agree with that. The marketing effort for XP was way better done.

But..... the marketing for the launch of Windows 95 was the pinnacle of Microsoft marketing. They have not approached that level since.
People queued at computer shops up to midnight to buy Windows 95.

In those days, no-one bought software off the internet.

There was no queuing for Vista because you can buy it from your couch.
