Vista Blog Backfires!

Last week, I told you about the Mojave experiment, in which end users tried out an unknown operating system and loved it, and the OS turned out to be a disguised version of Vista.

Microsoft has been fighting back against critics in other ways. For instance, after Forrester Research declared that far less than 10 percent of enterprise users were in Vista, a Microsoft exec blogged that Forrester was "schizophrenic" because some analysts were big fans of the OS.

The problem? The blog by Chris Flores included a comments section. Actual end users ripped Microsoft a new one, not just by complaining, but by going into great detail about Vista problems, lost files, crashes, multiple rebuilds and things just not working. Oops!
