SanDisk not keen on Vista

According to SanDisk chief Eli Harari, the architecture of Windows Vista is hindering his companies ability to roll out SSD (Solid-State Drives), saying that it’s not optimized for using this type of storage device.

“The next generation controllers need to basically compensate for Vista shortfalls,” said Harari, though he did not mention exactly where the flaw was.

If they way Vista access files were to be improve, by Harari’s logic SSDs would perform much better than they do now. That could be, but it also could be that he is jumping on the “Vista sucks” bandwagon to make up for the fact that some consumers aren’t experiencing the performance or battery life gains they expected when choosing an SSD over a traditional mechanical hard drive.
