Vista: Biggest Tech Dissapointment of 2007

Well, here we are at the close of another year with top 10 lists abound.  Here's another accolade for Microsoft to chalk up for the Wall of Achievements: PC World has rated Vista the number spot for The 15 Biggest Tech Disappointments of 2007.  It's really a shame.  Ya know, you'd think that with a development cycle of five years they could have gotten it right.

But before the Mac fanboys get all worked up for another round of M$ bashing, the iPhone doesn't seemed to have faired well either.  It ranked at #5.  Why?  Well, I think a lot of people thought its release was a large nail in the coffin of the closed network of the cellular telcos, only to have our dreams dashed because of its bondage to a single provider.

Oh well, at least someone besides myself thinks that Vista didn't live up to what it could have been.
