This is apparently a post full of MS employees discussing how terrible Vista is. Who could possibly say they're surprised? After the 20th MS product you use turns out to be a bug-ridden crash machine, it's hard to expect anything new not to be the same.
One day, after everyone buys new computers that come pre-installed with Vista enough that everyone HAS Vista, those of us who don't will be forced either to upgrade or live with a computer that can't talk to anyone. That's the thing that gets me. Even if you KNOW Windows is crap, your ability to make an informed consumer decision is grossly limited by the consumer decisions of everyone else.
