15 Biggest Tech Disappointments of 2007 (PC World)
For all my Leopard problems, Vista takes the cake as suckiest product of the year.
I suppose the real question on Vista is if it's better than XP? So far, the verdict is a resounding no according to PC World which gave Vista the #1 sucker spot.
It's just that Vista isn't all that good. Many of the innovations the operating system was supposed to bring--like more efficient file and communications systems--got tossed overboard as Microsoft struggled to get the OS out the door, some three years after it was first promised. Despite its hefty hardware requirements, Vista is slower than XP.
