Last time I checked they released XP SP3 because Vista failed.
And if they want Vista to succeed as fast as possible then why did they start development for windows 7 so soon? It's expected to be released 2009 - 2010.
The thing is.
Their first XP runner up was going to be Windows: Blackbomb (Codename), they discontinued that and went for Vista.
Now after the Vista history we all know, they picked up Blackbomb again to develop that to the new Windows 7
