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.

General rules of thumb:

The word "then" is always related to time.

"It happened then."
"Back then, things were better quality."

The word "than" is always related to comparisons.

"It was better than yesterday."
"Back then, things were better quality than they are today."
