Dan has a pretty good point here, although I have not found this to be true yet, Vista could be, as he says, a horrible piece of software. It may be even true that, "People dislike Vista because Vista is awful . However, his point: "Defending Vista shows not just an ignorance of operating system and user experience fundamentals: it tricks both fellow users and even Microsoft employees into spending time and resources in wasteful and potentionally harmful ways, instead of concentrating on how to use and build the Windows features that we all need.", may not be relevant.
It could be that Vista is a horrible piece of software because the internet is a horrible place to operate and an impossible place to control. My expertise is in the use of applications and not in the creation or fixing applications. Vista acts, to me, like it is a complete move away from the old obsolete foundation Windows. Vista acts like the software SolidWorks acts. It could be, like SolidWorks, Vista has almost no data in the file itself, only links and references to other files. These file would be either located on your local hard-drive, or on the internet itself. Vista only keeps track of the commands that the user uses as their own and writes that to the hard-drive. In that way it or anyone else has little control over the information used and only memorizes in RAM the commands needed. It is all RAM intensive. If this is true, it could be an effort at taking back command, much like the people who voted for Obama has tried to do, of the system, instead of trying to control what is being copied to the system.
If this is the case, Windows has out lived its usefulness, because the internet is just too corrupt for Microsoft, or soon for anyone else to control. Microsoft have given up trying to control the internet and is focusing on how the internet commands. I think this is a bold move for the people of Microsoft as it was for the people of America.
Of course as I said, I only do applications, I have no knowledge of how these systems actually work. It could be that the people who are trying to control us will just keep on keeping on.
