    Yeah, this is exactly what MS need to be "Seen" to be doing. When a user
    hits problems they need to see somebody cares, not a bunch of people
    saying "It's your own fault because you ... " etc.

    I sympathize somewhat with MS because Vista is entering a market that's
    looking at avoiding wasting money and looking for alternatives, and
    misbehaving with the life cycle of XP systems that folks are used to and
    happy with - and hardware they have which will cost money to upgrade is
    a problem they seem to want to create, instead they should avoid it even
    if that means less forceful attempts to market Vista. Willing users are
    far more likely to accept setup problems than folks who feel they have
    been forced into adoption.

    IMHO Vista II should be a whole new secure core (I mean secure not UAC
    style user security) with everything else (Like your issue with media
    player) quite independent.

    Trying to maintain compatibility with Legacy should be nothing to do
    with the core, instead a modular series of "Emulators" should be
    designed, by then the hardware should be able to cope with it, so if you
    want to play games on it you run them under something like a virtual
    machine. This is light years ahead of my ability to design, but so is
    most of the MS stuff they already have so I don't believe it would be
    impossible to do.

    I mean the current MS philosophy, including server versions etc, seems
    to be to design and all singing all dancing system and then sell cut
    down versions such as home basic. The work is already done so there's no
    saving to MS really, simply a marketing exercise. What I suggest is more
    or less a secure hardened VM without unnecessary bloat and a set of
    brand new apps to run on it. Sure, it sounds a bit like Linux or BSD,
    nothing wrong with that if it works. If there's been an error maybe XP
    was made just too versatile and trying to improve on it from a usability
    point of view is just diminishing returns.

    Good points, Charlie. I agree.

    Looking at things now, I really believe Microsoft should have just
    started from scratch, like is hinted for Windows 7. With XP being
    supported for several more years and many folks happy as can be
    using it- Vista should have been what Windows 7 will probably be
    or, just skipped it altogether until Microsoft could get it right, and make
    something that really made folks go "Wow".

    Good points from both of you Michael and Charlie. But you know all
    irresitible forces in the equation from the hdw manufacturers of boxes and
    peripherals that are salivating for a new MSFT OS every so many years not to
    mention the pressure on Ballmer and the business end of the Windows platform
    to make megabucks. In a really better world, what you suggested might have
    happened.

    That, unfortunately, really sums it all up, Chad.
