Yeah, I can see how that conversation will pan out.

MS -> App Developers
"Yeah, well, we''re pretty much doing away with what you're used to so your
app isn't going to work the next Windows release.  We need to do this to
improve security, it'll be worth it for everyone in the long run.  Meantime,
you're gonig to need to recode your app."

App Developers -> End User
"Microsoft broke our app."

End User
"God damn Microsoft.  That new OS is crap, nothing works on it.  I won't be
investing any of my hard earned cash on their new OS."

Exactly - and the *only* thing that MS cares about is getting your hard earned
cash.  That's why they didn't fix this in Vista, or XP, or ME, or W2K, or NT 4,

The unbelievers are welcome to look at how many corporate sites have drunk
the Vista kook-aid - very few.  About the only Vista sales MS has is the ones
they've had pre-loaded onto computers as they leave the factory.
