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.

What's the hardware?
Intel Core 2 Duo E6550, 2GB RAM, 750GB hard disks, Geforce 8600 GTS. Good enough for Vista.

Vista SP1 might work here, but I'm out of nerve. It took quite some effort (and money) to find out that XP and Linux work fine and cover all my needs (while Vista gave me peptic ulcer).
