Windows It's been a while since the latest Microsoft-should-open-source-Windows article, so SJVN felt compelled to write one. "Although Microsoft may claim otherwise, Vista, from both from a technical and business point of view, is proving to be a failure. Why not turn it over to people who have shown time after time that they can deliver the goods?"

Mmmm... invest a couple of billion dollars. Sell a couple of million copies at a couple hundred bucks.

You'd really want that?


P.S. Not saying Vista only sold a couple of million copies or that they invested 2 billion dollars either. Just saying beware of vague figures and consider what they invested to argue if it's a failure or not ;)

No I would not! You're right, I didn't think about the development investment. But let's not forget that Vista has only been publicly released for a few months, I'm fairly sure it will rapidly increase its market share whether it's a piece of junk or not.
