Windows Heck, Microsoft really weren't kidding when they said Windows 7 was the fastest-selling operating system in the world. NetApplications released its figures for January 2010, and it seems that after only three months of availability, Microsoft's latest baby has already hit the 10% market share mark.

Windows Vista - Absolutely awful (I use it every day and it is an utter misery,) when compared to the expectations of the day probably the worst OS ever made).


I think you're exagerating a little. IMHO, Vista's greatest flaw, and the biggest improvement in 7, is basically just speed (and mainly start up speed, so far as I can tell). It may be slow to log you in... but that's not exactly torture.

Compared to the difference between OS families -- like, Windows vs. a Linux distro, or Windows vs. Os X -- the differences between Vista and 7 are minor. People blow waaaay out of proportion how bad Vista was, and how incredible Win7 is.
