Vista will eat itself

Don Reisinger knows what’s good for Microsoft and that’s burying all copies of Vista in New Mexico along with E.T. for the Atari 2600. He points out all of Microsoft’s failures — no extras, a stunning resemblance to OS X/Linux, and slow updates — and refuses to see the good deep in Vista’s heart.

The time is up. Microsoft must abandon Vista and move on. It’s the company’s only chance at redemption.

Don, Don, Don. First, have someone else start your car for you tomorrow morning because Redmond’s vat-grown ninjas are definitely on to you and have already probably wired it to Blue Screen you. Second, Vista is not a failure. It’s a new OS with lots of problems but it’s not going anywhere. Run XP all you want. Eventually your indignity will be rewarded when MS pulls their support for XP and makes you buy Vista 2012 Cyborg/Student Edition. Microsoft is pushing you into the future, albeit with some bumps, and you’re going to have to eat their porridge or install Feisty Fawn, which I hear is great.
