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".

First, I admit that I didn't read the actual articles, since the summary itself is so ridiculous that I question whether it even meets OSNews's threshold to be posted here. So maybe there is some great insight in the linked articles that I'm ignorant of.

I'll just say that XP matured with SP2. OSX matured with Panther. Win9x matured with Win98SE. Mac OS 7 matured with Mac OS 7.5x. Win3 matured with Win3.3x. See the pattern? Whenever a new OS is released it takes a few updates over the next 1 to 3 years (or so) to work out all the kinks. It'll be no different with Vista.

I'm hoping that it's faster for Vista due to all the diagnostics and feedback that end-users and devs can get just by looking at the Reliability and Performance Monitors.
