It's not all the crappy vendors fault - a lot of the blame lies with Microsoft.
I agree. While some of it is the vendors, a lot of it is Microsoft. I ran vista on my computer for about 6 months, and rolled back to XP after I got fed up with it being so slow (btw, its dual core, w/2 gigs of ram, so it's decent). The only thing I enjoyed was the interface, but it was not enough to make me stick with Vista. As for Windows Calendar, it's brand new in Vista (Windows did not have one since Windows 3.1), and you need to give the vendors time to figure out how to access the new features, and work with it without having big issues. Plus, I bet windows' new paranoia settings are not helping with that, as it denies access to a lot of things.
If you want a calendar that works, use a real one such as Outlook.
