    I remember all the hoopla around win 95, 98, 2000, and XP. There was a lot of positive coverage of these releases.

    I can't ever remember such scathing negative coverage of the *release* of a new MS OS.

    Perhaps I'm getting forgetful in my old age? Was there any?

    A Google on the phrase "most pointless upgrade" (with quotes) brings up Vista in the first result :D.

    Was there the big hype over Vista that XP had, I remember a lot of excitement when XP was released.

    Win Me was released after Win2000. It was always intended to be a home system, and I think there wasn't so much criticism on its actual release.

    The real slagging off started after a few months, when people started using it. MS only sold it for a single year before dumping it :D

    Good call tho. From WP:
