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.

It is a perception problem

Every release of Microsoft OS is pushing something that people do not like. Only this time, the resistance is stronger. It has been done before, but why the people are so stubborn this time ? This is nothing new, really, they swallowed it before.......

I agree that Vista is no more problematic than any past Microsoft's new release, but the perception of those problems is different today.

The next OS is going to meet even more resistance.
