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.

Ps. Never said you couldent do anything with under 1gb of ram or even 1gb total,

I've been chugging along just fine and happily with 768mb RAM for years now. Under Linux I get swapping _only_ if I am doing heavy browsing and compiling at the same time, otherwise it's not swapping. XP for some reason does use swap somewhat more often but even then not noticeably unless I am gaming. When gaming I can understand it though, WoW does use insane amounts of memory.
