Phillip Su of Microsoft posted a great rant called Broken Windows Theory about why Microsoft Vista shipment date slipped.  It's a very heated topic that caught the attention of Robert Scoble on his blog. Lately, Vista's dates have kept slipping and people have started to notice.
 
In there, he named the usual suspects of why Windows shipments are delayed, such as:
 
*  Windows code is too complicated
*  Windows has gone thermonuclear when it comes to process
 
He also claims that it is cultured to slip and that there are too many cooks in the kitchen.  I think that he is pretty much pointing out the same problems most large organizations have when putting out a large product, at least in my experience. Interesting read to say the least.
