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.

You know, I had almost started to believe that Vista was not that bad and that everybody saying anything different was just in denial.

Then, in two days, I met two guys with Vista on their laptops. Both times, I said "Hey, you're running Vista." and the answer was "Yeah, it sucks!"
Ordinary people, mind you, not Linux folks.

I do know that the plural of anecdote isn't data but it's definitely not as clear cut as some MS fanboys make it out to be...
