Everyone seems to forget the massive driver issues that XP had, far more than Vista.

What were the main competing forces XP was facing? OS/2? Apple System 9?

Neither appealed to business consumers at all.

OSX is going gangbusters right now, and on the tablets, people are happy with the iPad. Don't you think Microsoft *needs* this to be a solid release?
