Windows According to at least one blogger, Microsoft should abandon Vista before it's too late. It would appear he's not alone in this opinion, as Microsoft has begun allowing users to downgrade back to XP. Amongst the reasons? Poor sales figures and shoddy Vista "Extras".

I think mini-microsoft blog was the begining of problems for Vista. People working for Microsoft spoked about Vista during beta development stage that nothing good will come out of it and that Vista is more or less a crap OS.

We saw that it was more or less the truth when RTM appeared and now early SP1 reports say it is more of the same RTM.

I have had similar expirience with Vista as did all those folks saying out luod that Vista sucks.
Too bad, 5 years in development should have brought something trully revolutionary to desktop and yet we are faced with situation where Microsoft started downgrade(or upgrade, depends how You look at it) to Windows XP. Does this means Vista can't be fixed?

Luckily some other OS'es are advancing without show stops, and I might just look for an alternative soon.

Something is wrong with an OS if you have to write from scratch. That is the case of Vista.
