Vista: Nails Top Spot

February 27, 2009

I chuckled when I spotted this headline: “Microsoft Vista Voted Tech World’s Top Fiasco” here. I know there’s a search box on the start menu. I know search is available everywhere. I know. I know. I also know that I don’t use Microsoft’s built in search system. Call me old fashioned. Sciam said:

What’s more, the Fiasco Awards Web site points out, the new operating system was complicated to navigate and had compatibility problems with many programs and hardware drivers, leading many people to just stick with Windows XP. Vista was such a dismal failure that many PC makers even recommended that consumers steer clear of it.

Well, it may not be as impressive as Google’s share of the Web search market, but it’s a number one. Trophy generation wizards are used to getting awards. In Harrods Creek, some families award lumps of coal for good behavior. An American tradition.
