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.

Yeasterday I thought why not look for myself what Vista is made of. Well... It has nice face. But it is not a women I could accept all its shortages;)
It takes way too long to install and way too many reboots are needed to acomplish this task. It didn't find internet line instantly, like ALL my tested LiveCDs did. Other problems, I guess, were connected with fact, it was on VirtualBox and not on real machine. But I guess with 2GB RAM and 128MB v. video card Solitaire should not become like Quake 4 on Pentium II...
