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.

Why should I pay for a more expensive machine, pay for extra RAM, pay for a Vista license, go through all sorts of registration hassles, and use up a lot more disk space ... all to get less functionality...


It isn't less functionality. You're running less software (eg. no desktop search, etc), and you're declaring victory over resource usage. Try comparing apples and apples.
