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".

Maybe, you do use both every day, but you cannot compare them like that.

If you are working as root, Ubuntu will not keep asking for the root password.

Vista still activates UAC prompts when you are logged in as administrator. This is both stupid and aggravating, and a major cause of people turning UAC off, thus removing any security benefits Vista had over XP.
