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 disagree, quite a number of people that I know have upgraded, or recieved Vista with a new computer and have explicitly wanted to downgrade again, not because they are used to XP, but just because Vista still has too many issues to be useable.

Oh, please. Talk about propaganda and hyperbole. I have to deal with hundreds of customers who are running Vista, and I've only run across one person who went back to XP after trying Vista -- and it wasn't because of Vista problems but, rather, because a legacy app wouldn't work perfectly under Vista. Only Microsoft hateboys (who secretly run Windows games) are sowing this kind of disinformation, in my experience.

Only Microsoft shills (who secretly run Windows XP) are sowing this kind of disinformation, in my experience ;)

Seriously now, I know no one who currently has Vista installed in his computer, and out of those who I know that have tried it (both friends and co-workers) not a single person liked it (let alone keeping it installed).

It's just a sample that doesn't represent an universal fact, but stating that it doesn't happen just means being in denial.
