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.

I found the same thing with a Vista laptop I bought (dual-core, 1 GB RAM). Ran like a turd, an all the other Vista frustrations and crashes made me phone up the mfr. (HP). They eventually told me (if you can believe this) to try installing Ubuntu (as they refused to give me XP). Installed (K)ubuntu, and no more problems.

I am sure that if Microsoft had instead told users to try the NEW IMPROVED WINDOWS MOJAVE (Ubuntu in disguise, running Compiz) they would have gotten much better testimonies from their participants.
