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.

If the driver is shipped on MS Vista distribution CD's, it is Microsoft's responsibility. Many of the HW vendors are no longer in business. If the driver doesn't work well and/or destabilizes their OS, why oh why do they include it with their OS? Even worse, why doesn't Vista include drivers for Microsoft branded wifi cards? If a linux driver doesn't work the people blame linux, if a win driver doesn't work you should blame MS.
