Chances are if it is owning you, you can't figure out how to shut it off either.

Vista was just flimsy. UAC was at it's early stages and very buggy. People were having folder permissions revoked from the main admin account which was pretty awful. I actually had this happen to both my work PC and my home laptop at the time.

It was heavyweight, incredibly slow on older machines and honestly, didn't really offer anything groundbreaking over XP. All it really did was bring Windows visually forward by introducing Aero and a few other usability features.

Because of how tempermental it was, everyones opinion of it is skewed a bit because it was completely subjective, some had good experiences, but in the end, most were pretty bad.

It goes good, awful, good, awful with Windows, it always has.

Not really, everyone's entitled to their own opinion. I actually like macbooks but can't stand OSX.

I chose windows 7. I think it's fantastic.

Under what twisted logic is that proving your point?

Windows 7 is just a markedly better OS than Vista in every respect. Perhaps your adversity towards Win7 is due to the fact you're misinformed? tongue.gif

I like Windows 7. It does the same thing as Vista. It's almost the exact same OS.

post #18 of 173
Windows 7 for me,I use it for 2 years now thumb.gif,I used windows vista for 1 year and a half and it worked like a charm,I saw people having problems with it and crap like that,but the true problem is them,you need to know how to make your windows work for you.Windows vista never let me down and it worked like a charm,of course I polished it at every second after install.

I don't mean to be rude but this poll doesn't really make any sense (read above posts too).
But if you do wish to continue with it, there is no one stopping you.
Also, please change your title to "Your favourite Windows operating system". I know this is in the "Windows" section anyway but it would be better if you did as most people don't really look at the section when the come to the thread from the "Latest Discussions" feed on the main page.

If I knew how to edit the poll I would add more operating systems than just Windows.. I'll rename the thread now smile.gif

It's just merely for fun, theres no actualy point to this thread but I felt that it needed to be created.. if you think it's a stupid thread then that's fine with me.
