Nobody Likes Vista. Except 40 Million Users - Page 7

post #61 of 109
bah! - so what does that say???

you know what a survey should be carried out on?

how many people actually LIKE, and CONTINUE to use the OS, as their MAIN OS...

You'll find that thats not many.

A survey on XP/Vista users even here - will show the very same thing...

Just because you buy it does not mean you like it. Trust me.

I bought Vista because Dell forced me to and I hate it. I knew I should've bought a Mac.

As for the comment about Vista not running right cause your pc is old and crappy. See my sig it's no rocket but it's very current. However my X-FI sounds like crap because of the lack of drivers. None of the creative software is compatible. My TV tuner is 100% incompatible with Vista. Also I have had a driver conflict error since the day I got it. Funny thing is the error is a for a driver that I can't even seem to locate nor do I know what it's supposed to drive. Plus the sidebar that has the clock etc. doesn't even load on about 1 outta 3 boots.

Last night I was testing some Oblivion mods, which involved opening and closing a game that easily takes over a GB of RAM over and over. Once Vista caught on, it became VERY fast to start the game, many times faster than it ever could be in XP.

The GUI contains some welcome though minor improvements, but that should not be the focus when it comes to evaluating an OS. Security, stability, support, and speed are what matter; Vista is in many ways the first time Microsoft has ever been truly serious about any of those. It ticks me off that Microsoft actually DESERVES praise for a change, and the once-warrented bashing continues on as it always has.

Just got a new Sony Vaio C2D Lappy with Vista Home Premium.I had my doubts about Vista;[resource hungry ram eater etc..].After about 2 days of use I can honestly say I like Vista better than XP once I figured out the menu layouts.
