It's a race to the bottom

Mary Jo Foley: “If you’re Microsoft — especially a member of the Vista team — there’s no way you can help but gloat. Very few Softies or their loyal followers are gloating publicly. But there’s no way they aren’t enjoying this turning of the tables.”

21B3gn+D6eL._AA_SL160_.jpgNow this is just ridiculous. Softies are gloating because Leopard is as buggy as Vista, if not worse? I’m sure Mary Jo’s article is very much tongue-in-cheek, but reading some of the MS fanboys’ blogs linked by Dave Winer, it’s no doubt that they are damn serious about it: they seem to be glad that Vista has reached parity with OS X not by virtue of becoming less obnoxious, but by virtue of Leopard being bad.

PXLated

So what are all these bugs of which they speak? I haven’t run into one myself yet on any of five installs. Is everything peachy, no but it’s usually just getting used to some things and yes I know there are some bugs but it’s hardly massive and wide spread. All in all I’m a happy camper which is more than a lot of Vista fanboys can say 😉
