No it is not a stop gap it is a 'give me more money.' Stop gaps would be updates and expansions to an earlier version.

Isn't Windows Vista just the current and less buggy interim software to Windows Seven such that Windows ME (Millenium) was to XP ie "a stop gap until we at Microsoft get the really good version out"?

still an MS hater due to Microsoft ME

With one small change "Step away from the windows, XP" it becomes a reference to "3 Days of the Condor", and XP meets Bazooka Joe.

Microsoft wanted to kill XP (or rather stop any support for it) since Vista came out. Unfortunately XP was as successful as IE6 and similarly doesn't want to go away. Windows 98 was similarly successful, but times have changed and security risks that didn't exist when 98 was roaming the world are now reality. If you think that companies are lying a'la Nazis about security think this, MS was thinking about giving security updates only to non-pirated versions of their software, but then they realized that the rest would be security risk for everybody, so they bit the bullet and gave patches to everyone (not that they don't think of new creative ways to milk consumers :)).
