Microsoft Vista voted tech world's top "Fiasco"

It's official, Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system gets the prize for being the most over-hyped, under-performing information and communication technology (ICT) project. Windows Vista garnered 5,222 of 6,043 votes (86 percent) entered via the Web to snag top honors in the first-ever Fiasco Awards announced in Barcelona, Spain, today, beating out other contenders, including Google's Lively virtual world, the One Laptop per Child computer (developed by the Nicholas Negroponte-chaired One Laptop Per Child Association, Inc.) and Second Life. Second prize went to SAGA, the oft-malfunctioning administration and academic management system developed by Spain's Catalan Education Department for public school teachers in Catalonia.

And the 360 is the worlds biggest consumer electronics fiasco of all time.

Microsoft is such a garbage company.

I'm so glad I switched to Macbook for my laptop over a year ago. I still have a PC desktop, but I use Windows XP on it still. My PC is ancient, and I have no intention of replacing it any time soon. I hardly even turn it on anymore either.
