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.

The reason why you can't say "yes, and don't ask me again" is because the next time it comes up, it might be caused by something malicious.

I've been using Vista for the past 5 weeks and I love it - looks brilliant, stable, fast (very fast actually), reliable - it *just* works. And I'm using the 64 bit version, which supposedly has more problems than you can poke a stick at.

UAC is not a major issue at all, certainly no worse than dropping to a terminal in Linux and having to su or sudo to gain root access.

If you're going to whinge about something, then at least whinge about something that's worth while.
