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.

Vista's okay, but there ARE flaws

I like the fact that Vista is in constant defrag behind-the-scenes, and I kind of like the Sidebar and the bundled games.

The one thing I can't get past is that Vista's filesystem performance SUCKS compared to XP. Copying files takes a lot longer than XP or Linux, and games aren't as smooth without a faster PC to compensate.
