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 never understood why Microsoft didn't choose to follow the same route of Apple with MacOS X, that is, taking an open Unix-like kernel, implementing a sensible user interface on it, and obtaining in output the best of both worlds, probably also cutting down on development expenses. Plus a Classic-like environment for old apps. "

MS's bread and butter is compatibility, and if they did that, they would lose a lot of business from err...businesses, who want to make reasonably sure their stuff will run. And I'm not talking about driver compatibility, but application, which is not too bad on Vista, and will get even better
