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.

Hey, I really don't get the Vista bashing.

I'm running Vista Ultimate on my computer, which consists of 512MB ram and a 2.8GHz P4. It runs no slower than a modern Linux distro.

I like Vista much better than XP, too.

Go ahead, Digg me down for my opinion.

Here's a screen of my Desktop too:

Nice, but I used Linux distro's that looked as good or better with 3d effects. Not saying your's is bad just that vista isn't all that.

Meh. I feel that for the most part, Compiz is overly feature rich, and that I almost always have to mod it down to the point where I'm running almost nothing. I think Vista does it in a much more elegant way, to tell you the truth. Another thing is that Vista has been much more stable for me compared Compiz.
