Microsoft Windows Vista – the operating system that has been known more for its malfunctioning and loopholes than the amazing new set of features that it came with is now four years old. It was in November 2006 that Microsoft released, what it called the “highest quality version of Windows that we’ve ever produced“, for manufacturing.
While the malfunctions of Vista have been pretty well documented, it also needs to be noted that this was still only a topic of discussion among nerds and that the notoreity that the software did not affect the sale of Vista units itself significantly. Also, with the majority of issues being ironed out with the release of SP1, users did not have much to complain about.
Nevertheless, with the success of its successor, Windows 7, it is safe to assume that Microsoft’s nightmares with the release of Vista are well and truly over.
