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.

KDE 4.3 still looks a bit ragged and unfinished (imho, of course) and with limited functionality Excuse me, but you have GOT to be kidding, surely? Install Windows 7 from the install CD. Then install Kubuntu Karmic (KDE 4.3) side-by-side (perhaps dual boot) on the same machine. Then try and do stuff with that machine. The bare Kubuntu KDE 4.3 installation will absolutely spank the bare Windows 7 installation for functionality (and beat it for performance, but that is not the point here). Having noted that fact and thereby introduced an element of objective truth into the discussion ... carry on.

Why do dickheads complain about a lack of bundled software with Windows and then complin that IE shouldn't be bundled with Windows. You can't have your cake and eat it too!

Why do dickheads try to introduce irrelevant whines into the discussion, try to provoke nasty responses to their ad hominem attacks, and utterly fail to address the actual point made?
