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.

Ah no. Just because a company is bust, does not mean that someone *else* does not own the trade secrets, patents, trade mark, and code etc. Quite often, that will stop say, Microsoft, or others, from being able to develop them any further.

Microsoft does a pretty good job of it - sure, they're not perfect, but Linux isn't either - DON'T even get me started. I'm sick and tired of blind Linuz zealots protecting Linux and all its myriad of problems, and then bashing Microsoft at the smallest of issues.

Yeah Blue Screens are a small issue. You seem to have avoided the part about including the faulty drivers with their OS distribution. If they distribute it, they should have acqired the rights to fix it. BAD BUSINESS MODEL
