  Old  Some People Hate Vista, I Don't!

I hear tons of people these days talking about how much Vista sucks, and how Microsoft is nothing compared to the almighty Apple Corporation. The thing is that they really aren't that bad. My friend recently got a new laptop with Vista Ultimate and I played around with it and found that as long as you have enough RAM to handle the graphics, it's not all that bad.

These are the negatives that I have scrapped up around the internet:

1. From Microsoft.
2. Graphic Heavy, Unnecessary.
3. Not Compatible With XP Software
4. Ugly Interface
5. Multiple Versions: Basic, Ultimate, ETC.
6. and a few others...

I personally find that these are all stupid reasons to get angry about. I mean sure the Mac leopard has a nice interface but it is no reason to get up on Microsoft's case for.

What do you think? Do you like or hate the Vista and why? Share your thoughts and feelings here...

You can disable Aero and all unnecessary effects. Which makes it run a lot faster and still look good.

I have Vista, and I read all over the internet that people have a lot of errors. I have been using Vista on my laptop since August 2007, and I have to say that not only are the graphics beautiful but I have not run into any problems. I can run Photoshop, Dreamweaver, iTunes and everything else without a problem.

Really, I don't know where half of these Vista haters find these errors.

I know seriously. Sometimes I think that Apple is making its employees write these things all over the internet.

VISTA has a major flaw in the memory managment side of the OS.

Amoung many other flaws vista also cant mannage the graphics controlers as well as they should.

Windows 7 due to release in 2009 is supposed to fix these problems

Just can't run Linux as a dev when designing for 99% Windows users.

Vista ****es me off sometimes, but their readyboost feature is really nice. Cache in an sd card slot. Got a very fast 2 gig SD card, popped it in my laptop and performance is superb along with my 2 gigs of physical RAM.

Also for anyone interested, I came across this site concerning Vista SP1 today. Legit.
