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.

Compared to the relative ease of use with Windows XP, Vista sucks. It takes forever to open subfolders in the root directory; ditto for copying files. The UAC is unnecesarily intrusive, and they ruined the search feature. It's a resource hog that even after 1½ years still has compatibility issues. With 2GB of RAM, it runs slower than my XP machine that has a processor only half as fast and 768MB of RAM. It's a million little aggravations; i.e., it's another Microsoft beta program.
