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.

In many ways, the recent emphasis on Windows 7 development seems like a large-scale version of the "Mojave experiment." I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft essentially took their plans for Vista SP2, then search-replaced "Vista SP2" with "Windows 7" in an attempt to escape Vista's bad press.
