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.

That basicly says it. Each new version is generally less impressive as the previous. I would say for the most part is is because it is maturing. But I would say it is mostly because lately there hasn't been any good competition to it. Linux is still not there (It has all the elements but not quite put together right). Mac OS X is competitive but requires selective hardware. OS 2 Dead (reason for the 95 Wow!).
