Mud sticks: Microsoft, Windows 10 and reputational damage

"What sunk Vista was Microsoft lying about what the minimum hardware requirements were."

That, and also many gaffes in the way the OS handled files (e.g. the "copy" process that could leave your PC unresponsive for anything up to hours) and unneeded changes in the UI and the system management utilities that just clashed with everything the users and the techies were used to, plus a worse compatibility with vintage software.

It's a mystery to me how MS didn't learn shit from their previous experience with Vista.
