It's no secret that Vista was not the best version of Windows when it was released. It was roundly criticized for poor performance, and hardware incompatibilities. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is usually Redmond's number one cheerleader. But today he's letting the cat out of the bag saying Vista was, "not executed well." Okay, it's something at least.

This statement was part of a half-hour long speech in which Ballmer discussed how he runs Microsoft. He stressed finding the best employees, and investing time in the right areas. The comments about Vista were part of an answer about how Microsoft innovates. He says that thousands of man-years were wasted because they were trying to do too much they were developing Vista.

Since Ballmer took over the reins of Microsoft, however, there have been a number of major releases. From Windows 7, to Bing, to Office 2010. Sure, Ballmer may always be remembered for running around a stage chanting and sweating, but you can't argue with his results.

Does he!? OR does he just copy and paste articles from the website? lol

*Edit*
This is old news. But it's also a marketing strategy, see now that they have Windows 7 and its going well for them they are bashing every old OS they made. So yeah, blame Windows Vista and its fault so more people think its crap and move on to Windows 7. Next they'll say that Windows 7 is the fastest over ever created? Yeah right! Windows XP still kciks Windows 7 ass in terms of speed.

That doesn't suprise me in the least. :P

Maximum PC has pretty good content it seems, but their layout is a little too busy for my eyes. I mostly read Ars (no subscription), but I've tweaked their site with Stylish, so it might be just as "busy" normally. :)

Actually I don't have a subscription at all. I just read what's there.
I think it's a cracking magazine. It's the most up-to-date site there is. They have
a plethora of insiders and a myriad of contacts. AND it's reliable :)
