Surely, Vista is still unstable.


And because of that, we end up with sloppy, "just good enough" experiences.
My earlier post on the pre-beta of Longhorn illustrates my point ENTIRELY.
And I'm complaining not for the sake of complaining - I truly, honestly want
to make this better for myself and the rest of the world (simultaneously).
I've given pages upon pages of valid feedback and ideas to the MSN Search
Champs, Featured Community Summit leaders, et al - but the loop needs to be
made tighter. I also know the marketing / PR departments aren't going to
understand a word I say.

Also, let us forget about the (in)famous three pillars for a while... a
_long_ while.

Good observation. I thought Vista /was/ SP3 until I read about that
ridiculous agenda for Service Pack III.11.
