The root of the problem was Microsoft's historical approach to developing software – the so-called 'spaghetti code culture' – where the company's thousands of programmers would each develop their own piece of code and it would then all be stitched together at the end.
As a new approach, a clean solid core code base for Windows was developed that supported adding new features over time much more easily. New tools were also introduced that would reject buggy code. Let’s all hope that this makes for a much better final product when we get Vista.
