Windows Vista Warnings and Issues

By Dave

Joe Wilcox has written up a great post on ten things he warned Microsoft about when they were developing Windows Vista. This post addresses many of the errors in judgement the company made with the operating system.

My favourite:

5. Vista reminds too much of Windows Me. In late 2006, I had dinner with some Vista user interface designers. By then, I had used Vista betas for nearly 10 months. They heard: There are two Microsoft operating systems that the more I used them the less I liked them—Windows Me and Windows Vista. While not my intention, the comment hugely insulted the UI designers, because of how much Windows Me is regarded, even within Microsoft, as a marketing failure. What happened: Some critics have described Vista as Windows Me II.

If you enjoy bashing Microsoft’s latest operating system, and even after all these months, who doesn’t, then check out the full post on Microsoft Watch.
