Vista was probably just too forward looking and essentially premature for the market. You can't always force feed a new product, no matter how much of the market you appear to own.
Probably the most accurate outlook concerning Vista that I've heard. I think the developers at MS just overestimated the hardware that the OS would be generally running on, and then upon discovering their blunder just tried to circumvent it by "dumbing it down".
Maybe Windows 7 actually will be mostly Vista, but they figure by 2010 the average unit will have enough processing power to actually handle it.
