29 Reasons to Not Get Vista
Microsoft Windows Vista hits (assaults) consumers on 30 January 2007. Starting with New Years Day that gives you twenty nine days to think about the big mistake you're about to make.
Every day of January 2007 until Microsoft Windows Vista is released you can read yet another good reason why it's not a good idea to get it.
2 January 2007 Reason #2: It's a Bug Farm.
Nobody makes operating systems this big anymore, especially Microsoft. Take any given programming challenge and watch Microsoft botch it worse than anyone else. And any time a new OS is released - especially this one that's been under wraps for five years now and still hasn't been tested - you're going to run into a lot of bugs.
Things are worse with Microsoft products because Bill Gates never said he was trying to produce the best software ever - no, Bill Gates has everything but quality on his agenda. He has to worry about the security he'll never have, he has to worry about dodgy agreements with the MPAA and the RIAA, he has to develop all this crazy digital destruction technology that's coming hidden in Vista, and so forth. When is he going to have time to worry about quality? When are they going to test for bugs?
