I think the problem with Vista was that it took so long to come out, that people were expecting this quantum leap over XP, that it just wasn't. Instead all it is, is a more memory intensive XP thats has a GUI thats trying to look like MacOS and really isn't as useful as either.

MS should have stuck the original Longhorn GUI onto XP SP2 back in 2004 and released it as a separate version. That would have been a great interim option to bridge the gap between XP and what we now know as Vista. It would have also allowed them more time to beta test to make sure they got it right.
