In the News It does not happen every day that news related to computer technology - news we report on every day - makes its way to the headline news programs and newspapers here in my home country, The Netherlands. So when it does, I am usually on the edge of my seat, simply because it offers an interesting glimpse into how 'normal' people perceive our little world. The last few days, however, that casual interest has made way for something else - tooth gnashing irritation.

"Look, I'm no MS fanboy, but this sort of crap is getting ridiculous. I have actively used Vista on a number of hardware platforms (Intel, AMD/Via, AMD/nVidia, AMD/ATI) and not had any of the stability troubles you speak of. Ever. "

"I", that's the key of your sentence. The fact that you never encountered any of these problems doesn't mean other people did.
I've seen only 2 installations of Vista, and both had issues: i.e. my boss bought a HP laptop with Vista Home preinstalled, and every time he runs or copy something from the local lan, he gets a blue screen of death.
Not really nice ;)
