I personally didn't care for Vista (performance-wise) but I wouldn't call it a failure. Everybody seems to jump on the bandwagon and dog Microsoft. Not everything they put out is garbage or "sub-par". IE could stand to improve but otherwise I like "M$". Security Essentials is free and I haven't had an infection since I started using it. I run Server 2008 R2 as a workstation and i love it. It's powerful, lightweight, and fast. I run Firefox as my main browser but I also use IE and Chrome on occasion (standards anybody?). Believe me, it took quite a few versions of Firefox and Chrome before they were even usable so Microsoft isn't the only company "pushing out" software that doesn't meet the public's requirements. There is always Linux...
