Windows "Windows Vista didn't make a smooth market entrance; in fact, nearly every aspect of the operating system has been attacked since its release on January 30, 2007. Multiple SKUs allegedly confused customers, anti-DRM groups disliked Vista's Protected Video Path and its overall DRM friendliness, and Microsoft's definition of 'Vista Capable' got the company sued. Toss in a plethora of bugs and the usual consumer backlash over GUI changes, and you'd think consumers would be avoiding Vista in droves. According to new information, however, they aren't - Vista's adoption rate over the past year actually exceeded XP's in 2001, and consumers apparently choose Vista over XP by a 7:1 margin."

I think that a lot of people were bashing on Vista , who knew Vista only from screenshots and articles.
I must admit that I also made that mistake to say "Vista is bad" without trying it out by myself.
A made the observation that love to bash on windows, but when a windows-user complains to him about a malfunction of linux, he answers: "Well, this is linux, you must know what you do".
This was the answer that I got, when some years ago I had problems to install a nvidea driver on Debian (and the x-server broke).
