How Vista would look like if I was in charge
What comes now is is probably beyond MAD.
Vista would not have a registry or anything that is like a registry.
Vista would only support USB devices, hence we would see cheaper motherboards with 10 or more USB connectors at the back.
Vista would be PCI-Express only.
Vista would be DX10 only.
Any hardware older than 3 years would no longer be supported if it didn't already get killed by one of the steps above.
Programs would be forced to store any information in the folder you give them, no more messing with MY C: partition. Delete the folder and the program is gone 100%.
Vista would have install options for IE, WMP, MSN ect. Those programs would not be embedded anywhere they would install like 3rd party software in their folder and I could tell them during the installation where.
Any updates are available as file downloads, those downloads would be composed to update packs on quarterly basis. Windows update would work on FF.
Features could be all found and configured in one place.
There is a PRO option during install which guides you through all the features and gives an opportunity to leave them off the system when installing Vista (like the Firewall, crappy M$ Spyware software).
At the first launch, programs would ask if they are allowed to store any usage information in their folder (that includes Vista itself).
There is a KICKASS defrag program installed by default.

But I guess that didn't do it.

Like it or not, Vista is replacing XP. By end of the year, 2 x 2 GB memory, DX10 cards and Quad core will be found/used in most hardware review sites. This is the nature of PC enthusiasts ...... common sense needs not apply

the reason why the switch goes so slow is because there is too much support for old hardware. That is not OK when you use 5 years to make a new OS.

some evidence that Vista in its current form is not appealing to business clients:

what business is buying Vista versions which need activation like that volume license all the way
some companies can be more dynamic than others in their OS choices, if you have none-IT users, you need to give OS training and add that to the cost. if you have IT aware users, you can let them do most of the IT legwork and save yourself some time and be up to date.
it all depends on which company, the needs, the people, etc.
