From the Wikipedia entry on The Mythological Man-Month, one of the ideas summarized:

"When designing a new kind of system, a team will design a throw-away system (whether it intends to or not). This system acts as a "pilot plant" that reveals techniques that will subsequently cause a complete redesign of the system. This second, smarter system should be the one delivered to the customer, since delivery of the pilot system would cause nothing but agony to the customer, and possibly ruin the system's reputation and maybe even the company's."

So now I see where Microsoft really screwed up with Vista - releasing it in the first place.
