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.

True, but what is stopping the new potential owner from actually getting off their backsides and doing some research and getting a laptop that ships with 2gb? It's not hard. It goes back to my earlier comments in many posts that far too many people are using computers who should simply not be allowed to do so. I hear horror tales every single day in my job, and nearly all of them caused by customer stupidity. They make life hard for themselves, and a lack of computer education (or, as in most cases, no interest in learning more about computers), means that this will remain so.

Sure, Microsoft does have the vista certified logo, and they have been naughty there, I agree.
