Windows Technologizer has an interesting article about why Windows Vista failed, and it provides 16 reasons why this is the case. A few of those reasons reveal a certain lack of understanding, but a more pressing issue is that while listing these reasons individually is interesting, Vista's failure in the marketplace can be explained in a much more compact fashion.

Although i bet most of us knew it already, thanks for the clear article. It is pretty much exactly how you stated it.

Windows 7 is infact not half bad at all, it is very stable (for me) and it does look great.

For me Windows 7 has taken over the role as my primary OS going from Ubuntu. Still have Ubuntu on the laptop, though. ;)

I could never use Vista but 7 works great. ;)
