Windows As someone who uses Windows Vista practically daily, I've always wondered where all the negativity in the media comes from. Sure, Vista isn't perfect (as if any operating system is), but I just don't see where all the complaints are coming from. It runs just fine on my old (6 years) machine, all my software and hardware is compatible, and it's stable as a rock. Microsoft has been wondering the same thing, and after a little test, they may have found out why people seem to dislike Vista so much.

My guess is that one of the reasons "Mojave" got positive feedback was that no one promised the users it would "revolutionize the way you work with computers".

Or it might be because Microsoft controlled the experiment. Users weren't shown the daily complaints about Vista but instead were fast-tracked to the eye candy et al.

Like when I show Linux off to my mates - I don't go "look at me load a Windows wifi driver through the command line" but instead i show them Compiz-Fusion with applications popping out of a rotating cube and windows wobbling as I drag them from one side of the screen to another.
