Code spaghetti out there yet again.

I guess when things don't work and the complexity is so high, a few more
iterations will make little or no difference. I can assure you one thing:
The most powerful feature of Vista will be on-line updates. Bug fixes and
loopholes will be the hallmark of that O/S.

What's the alternative? I, for once, am happy about this. I look forward to
user frustration that will certainly drive the user away.

Vista gives an opportunity for showing that Windows does not evolve.
Moreover, it serves as proof that problems with Windows are here to stay and
the time to drift away is now.
