Windows According to at least one blogger, Microsoft should abandon Vista before it's too late. It would appear he's not alone in this opinion, as Microsoft has begun allowing users to downgrade back to XP. Amongst the reasons? Poor sales figures and shoddy Vista "Extras".

FUD for sure. The same FUD spread when XP came out. XP was not revolutionary. XP was not even stable at fist, considering driver issues and all. XP was not even accepted by the 'Nerds' and 'Geeks' until after SP1. XP offered very little over 98/2000. The differences where mostly cosmetic (from a user viewpoint, not a technical viewpoint) and it was hard to find familiar settings. XP was SLOW on average hardware (when it was released)

XP is now the STANDARD in gaming. People want XP becuase it is SO reliable and FAST.

WHY DO PEOPLE FORGET SO EASILY? YOU'LL MOAN ABOUT EVERY WINDOWS RELEASE AS LONG AS YOU LIVE...
