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.

Microsoft has been awarded the world record in bullocks user testing. Ubuntu was shown with a deceptive Windows Vista theme and it turned out that Windows admins really dug the new command line, wobbly windows and the added security features. It's raining in Mojave.

I think this applies to just about anything new. People don't like to change, and word of mouth carries a ton of weight -- even if the word is bogus.
