    Mmm, yea - v4 has some nice things, but really its fight has always been to "be as good as v3".. its never really blown me away, the ajax stuff blows because browsers dont handle state well, still tons of weird errors, such as the page templating.. and the design choice to offer 'last read post' link vs having access to page numbers annoys me..

    As far as I know, Microsoft already admitted that they screwed up on the development process and the marketing.

    What else do you want them to say, that Vista sucks?

    This is what I mean when I say people want Microsoft to apologize for problems that don't exist.

    Ok sure but Microsoft has already admitted a lot . Maybe not on the right level it should have, direct to consumers, but they've said they made mistakes. And Vista doesn't suck, it still falls short in many ways, but doesn't suck, so no matter what they communicate, they have to make sure people know Vista doesn't suck.

    Cool that they dare to fess up about their mistakes. *cough*UltimateExtras*cough* The paragraph about push is pretty funny though. Especially how their use of the word "Push" is "a snag they ran into." How does that work? "Hey, what the? We can't seem to stop saying push! That's going to be a problem! Why didn't we catch this in beta?"

    And hey, who would have thought? I guess push doesn't mean 'pull every 15 minutes' after all.

    Technically shouldn't the sign off be from the Windows team, or Microsoft, because you talk about Windows 7 as "we", when we refers to the Vista team..

    What's the conversion rate for "Thank you for your patience" to "Sorry for C9v4"? I got a lot of the former Tongue Out

    e stop NOW!!!

    VISTA for now remains the best operating system at 360 degrees.

    Generic Forum Image

    Leading small business applications—including software from Adobe, Autodesk, Avanquest, CA, Corel, Intuit, McAfee, Sage, Symantec, and Trend Micro—and thousands of others are compatible with Windows Vista.



    Generic Forum Image

    Windows Vista now supports 77,000 printers, cameras, speakers and other devices and components—more than double the number supported at launch.

    Efficiency improvements. According to an independent survey, 62 percent of small businesses said Windows Vista SP1 saves them time, and 70 percent said that it makes them more productive.



    Generic Forum Image

    Those who try it like it. Small businesses that use it are up to three times more favorable toward Windows Vista.



    Generic Forum Image

    Stronger security. Windows Vista SP1 has fewer than half the security vulnerabilities of Windows XP. It's also 60 percent less likely to be infected by spyware or malware than Windows XP SP2. Windows Vista is the most secure Windows release to date.

    More peace of mind. Help safeguard your precious data with the new Windows Backup and Restore Center and Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption.*

    *Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption is available in Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows Vista Enterprise.
