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.

where all the complaints are coming from

I'll tell you. Two of my cousins have recently bought laptops with Vista on them, and when I visited them a few weeks ago, the first question they ask of me [note: when I visit them once in a year for some weeks I always check and fix their computers] was whether there was anything I could do with their laptops since parts of the OS keeps freezing. After checking it out, all I could tell them is try to live with it.

And what can you tell when someone asks how come a company so huge and "successful" as MS could create such an abomination ?

Yes, service pack made a few improvements, yes windows server 2008 is nice (little use for everyday people though who buy the OS they use), but wonderng why people complain about Vista, well, is just out of this world.
