PC Magazine Editor Throws in the Towel on Vista

If the unthinkable is moving to linux, what is dropping back down to XP
then? The unfathonable?
Seriously, Vista will get better people – but to believe that anything
will happen fast from Microsoft is just an expression of deep ignorance.

Aug 18, 2007 MacNN caught this incredible defection and loss of faith
by a former Vista booster, PC Magazine editor-in-chief Jim Louderback,
as he steps down from his position. “I’ve been a big proponent of the
new OS over the past few months, even going so far as loading it onto
most of my computers and spending hours tweaking and optimizing it. So
why, nine months after launch, am I so frustrated? The litany of what
doesn’t work and what still frustrates me stretches on endlessly. The
upshot is that even after nine months, Vista just ain’t cutting it. I
definitely gave Microsoft too much of a free pass on this operating
system: I expected it to get the kin
ks worked out more quickly. Boy,
was I fooled! If Microsoft can’t get Vista working, I might just do the
unthinkable: I might move to Linux.”
