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.

"you can polish a turd but it will still be a turd"

i think the point of this experiment isn't proving that vista is okay. it's that everyone in test groups is an idiot.

i'd install vista over xp any day, people who hate vista without actually using it are going to do what they're told in any experiment.

it's like teaching a parrot how to talk. it mimics and doesn't have an understanding of what it's actually saying.

emmm, no, if you polish a turd, it turns into a smudge.
