    Some of Microsoft's own top executives had trouble getting Windows Vista to work in the weeks after its release, according to company e-mails unsealed today.

    Just imagine, Bill Gate trying to get Vista to do an upgrade on a Windows 95 system... lol.

    I think Bill Gates would have given up on Windows after Vista, I think he's probably using Linux.

    You'll notice that the issues that the MS execs were having was due to 3 party driver problems. The article's statement "getting Vista to work" is a little misleading.
