Vista's problem is /not/ due to ISVs. It's a distraction, a decoy, a diversion.
Vista is not only bloated and insecure (among other problems)... but the
reason so much compatibility was lost is the poor initial design model, which
they needed to tinker with. Had they designed things properly in the first
place, none of this would have happened.

It's a tad too late now because a very recent study showed that developers turn
to Linux and OS X more than they turn to Vista. It's still XP that most people
target, but Linux and Apple are on the rise while Vista -- neglected.
