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.

Sure vista isn't bad, NOW, but its been over a year and MS has released a service pack and many updates to fix the issues.

They can't be surprised that the damage is done though, I mean there were serious issues when it launched, it was not ready for prime time.

Add to the fact that the revamped GUI is simply not enough of an incentive to upgrade over XP and its no wonder people are sticking with xp.
