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.

They didn't release an ineffecient operating system, they decided to include features which require more ram, since they made the call that people would probably have more ram these days..
You can't surely believe that every operating system should have the same requirements as its previous version?
I actually want something to take advantage of the hardware I bought!

You think indexing, desktop effects and the sidebar explain an eightfold increase in memory requirements?
