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.

Tried FreeDOS recently? Maybe not with pre-emptive multi-tasking, but with long filenames and somewhat better hardware support for recent machines.

I must say, it brought a little smile to my face when I recently booted the FreeDOS installation CD in QEMU and partitioned a usb stick: there's people out there that still make somewhat elaborate DOS applications! Nice.
