I dual-boot XP and Vista (because I have to test with both). The simple reality is that Microsoft opted for revolution instead of evolution. Almost none of the changes could actually be described as improvements. Performance in particular has been hit very badly - this tells us two things...
Vista is neither needed nor wanted by the public at large so it is hardly surprising that retail prices have been cut. Microsoft should have simply released XP++ with aero and UAC as options. It would have been a lot less hassle for everyone. Of course, it would not have resulted in a retail bonanza built on exploitation of the foolish and the over-eager.
