Windows "Windows Vista didn't make a smooth market entrance; in fact, nearly every aspect of the operating system has been attacked since its release on January 30, 2007. Multiple SKUs allegedly confused customers, anti-DRM groups disliked Vista's Protected Video Path and its overall DRM friendliness, and Microsoft's definition of 'Vista Capable' got the company sued. Toss in a plethora of bugs and the usual consumer backlash over GUI changes, and you'd think consumers would be avoiding Vista in droves. According to new information, however, they aren't - Vista's adoption rate over the past year actually exceeded XP's in 2001, and consumers apparently choose Vista over XP by a 7:1 margin."

Member since:

Ive tried running a lot of games on vista, and about half of them fail miserably (this is older games mind you).

This reminds me of the Win98 -> Win2k/XP times, when i also had to wait a few years before stuff worked properly.

Personally i cant stand vista, its a chore to use.
Sadly though, at some point you have to upgrade or you wont be able to run the newest stuff, as allways with microsoft products i guess ;)
