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.

Blue screens

Well, in my case... After having paid for this software, I was getting blue screens under heavy network activity. Probably some kind of driver incompatibility problem, because Windows XP and Linux did (and still do) work perfectly on this (new) hardware. I spent 3 months and 150 Euros on new hardware trying to solve this problem.

Suggested solution: use XP or Linux instead.

Good enough reason to dislike Vista?
