I believe Windows Vista was a necessary evil, software/hardware often takes wrong turns. It's only through mistakes that we gain the wisdom to perfect our ideas in the future
Well Vista wasn't a complete flop. I mean, it made many strides in important areas, including security and a lot of the internal workings. The reason it got such bad press is because it took steps backwards in areas that are most visible (ie file copying and simple operations like that).
Windows 7 seems to have fixed those glaring issues, and since they used the same driver model as Vista, voila we have working drivers right off the bat. This makes 7 look even better.
