    What a moron. You never read the article, did you? The experts the
    article is talking about that know are *Microsoft* employees, doofus.

    From the article you didn't read:

    "Here’s one story of a Vista upgrade early last year that did not go
    well. Jon, let’s call him, (bear with me — I’ll reveal his full identity
    later) upgrades two XP machines to Vista. Then he discovers that his
    printer, regular scanner and film scanner lack Vista drivers. He has to
    stick with XP on one machine just so he can continue to use the peripherals.

    Did Jon simply have bad luck? Apparently not. When another person,
    Steven, hears about Jon’s woes, he says drivers are missing in every
    category — “this is the same across the whole ecosystem.”

    Then there’s Mike, who buys a laptop that has a reassuring “Windows
    Vista Capable” logo affixed. He thinks that he will be able to run Vista
    in all of its glory, as well as favorite Microsoft programs like Movie
    Maker. His report: “I personally got burned.” His new laptop — logo or
    no logo — lacks the necessary graphics chip and can run neither his
    favorite video-editing software nor anything but a hobbled version of
    Vista. “I now have a $2,100 e-mail machine,” he says.

    It turns out that Mike is clearly not a naïf. He’s Mike Nash, a
    Microsoft vice president who oversees Windows product management. And
    Jon, who is dismayed to learn that the drivers he needs don’t exist?
    That’s Jon A. Shirley, a Microsoft board member and former president and
    chief operating officer. And Steven, who reports that missing drivers
    are anything but exceptional, is in a good position to know: he’s Steven
    Sinofsky, the company’s senior vice president responsible for Windows."

    forty-nine is a man of few words and even fewer intelligent thoughts.

    The only thing the NYT is proficient at is lying.

    LOL, It's the title of the article. "They Criticized Vista. And They
    Should Know" Should have been in "quotes" for the benefit of those who
    fly-by post. The story is just more of what has already been said about
    the class action suit and M$ internal emails.

    Don't worry about Alias. He uses Ubuntu so he has no ability to think
