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".

Technically, Microsoft has an out they could take if they wanted to, which is to repeat what they did with NT. Fork the platform between end users and business users, make the substantive changes in the business OS and pressure vendors to port their apps to it...then a few years down the road merge the consumer and business OSes.

NT was a good idea.
