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.

Microsoft's claimed "gains" in the server space are due only to Microsoft taking credit for hosting dead domains. It is purely a marketing sleight-of-hand, similar to counting downgrades to XP as Vista licenses.

10+ hours for a debian install? It takes two hours tops ... 30 minutes if you use something like Siddux or Ubuntu.

Either your install is borked and it is not going to work anyway ... or you are fibbing about it.

Now there is a jaw-dropping concept ... "Lying for Microsoft". What on earth next?
