Windows According to at least one blogger, Microsoft should abandon Vista before it's too late. It would appear he's not alone in this opinion, as Microsoft has begun allowing users to downgrade back to XP. Amongst the reasons? Poor sales figures and shoddy Vista "Extras".

my new computer came with vista. i played with vista a while before i formatted it and installed ubuntu. vista actually isn't that bad for a windows version. though it did seem only a little more bloated than xp. it was stable and seemed pretty good. the graphics were very pretty too.

i had been using ubuntu for 2 years and i had planned on formatting vista anyways, but i was pretty tempted to keep it. the things i don't like about vista are the things i don't like about all of Microsoft's platforms. for example, security, is easier on linux. especially installing updates. Linux is free software, and will always be free, this is the biggest draw to linux for me. I don't like being told how to use my software, and i don't really approve of Microsoft's software license.. Windows is missing the repositories to install software really quickly. honestly it's a nightmare to have windows on my home computer. it takes forever to do things that takes minutes on linux. Plus the problem with viruses and spyware.
