Vista is the last of the dinosaurs

Core thats a few people developing eh :

PUNDITS ARE starting to wonder if Microsoft will ever build another Vista.
Business Week claims that it took nearly 10,000 people more than five years to make Vista. As the Seattle Times points out, since the average Microsoft salary is $200,000 that is $10bn that Vole shelled out for salaries alone

CEO Steve 'sound of silence' Ballmer told the paper the final cost of developing Vista would be impossible to count. He was sure it was a lot, but he is a master of the understatement.

Ballmer said the problem was that Microsoft tried to innovate too much and had to toss a fair amount of this development in the toilet and re-launch the project in the middle of 2004.

But, while there is some innovation under Vista's bonnet, there is much that is the same. Windows XP users will not notice that much difference.

We all know that Microsoft has a lot of cash, but it remains questionable if it will ever bother making such a dinosaur again.

Microsoft should take a mac approach to OS's. Make a base OS an add on every year or so.

M$ wouldn't know what a microkernel was if it hit them in the face.

All they have to do is rebuild the kernel so all the core components can be swapped out without interfering with the rest of the OS. I don't think they have the skill to do that.
