Tracing Microsoft's Vista Capable Debacle


Unknown date, 2007 or 2008

Starting on pg. 47 (pictured) of the discovery is a list of driver crashes in Vista compiled by Microsoft for 'Period: 2007'. Whether that represents all or just part of 2007 is unclear. Also somewhat ambiguous is how the crash list was generated, though most agree that the numbers were gathered from users sending prompted reports to Microsoft following driver-caused application or system crashes in Vista. What is clear is that Nvidia is responsible for nearly 29 percent of the crashes on the list, giving weight to a host of complaints about the graphic chip maker's drivers in the first few months following Vista's release.
