People don't like Vista. Statistics are always bias.

Really do not see what is everyone prob with Vista. OK it may not be as fast as a OS that has been out for over 6years yet but do you really think anyone but computer enthusaist care? Runs very stable for me with not a single prob in the world. All my games work with no troubles and i am happy.

As far as gamers go you will be forced to upgrade to Vista by this coming fall if you want to play DX10 anyway so might as well jump in the pool now.

I work at a motel during the evenings and every EVERY person running Vista hates it. 99% of the time, they had just bought the Pre-Installed Vista laptop. To me it looks like a large part of the sales are in (Pre-Installed) laptops. A few of the companies that send people our way have uninstalled Vista and put XP Pro on their systems.

I have never used Vista-any of it's versions. So I cannot say one way or the other if it's anygood. Online here at overclock.net it's been 50/50 on likes and dislikes from what I can tell. In the real world around me. It's been hated.

At somepoint I may try it out and love it or I may hate it. Either way we still have XP out there for sometime to come.

What is it about Vista to hate? Tour hardware not compatible? That is not MS's problem take it up with whoever makes drivers for your product. Your computer is to old to run it? Again, not MS's problem. I really just want to know what peoples beef is with it.

OSX brought my G3 macbook to its knees, it originally shipped with OS9.

I can't beleive everyone is so surprised that vista runs slower on todays machines... what will it take, maybe 10-20 more OS releases before everyone figures out how things work?
I also think its funny how people try and install Vista on computers that can just barely run XP

Im sick of Vista trolling.. i dont care if you like it or not, it is more solid then XP; has more security, customization, pretty face, and a really high potential.
If you have a mac, your probably a "Vista sucks cause its from M$" person.. Vista feels more solid then OSX.. used both for hours.. OSX is like on the surface.. you cant get into the OS..

I totally agree.

Seriously, it's like the WinXP release all over again. Go ahead and complain all you want, but in a few year when Windows X comes out you're all going to be complaining about the same things, and nobody's going to want to give up there copy of Vista. Several years after that, same thing.

yep, until that point (when everyone is trying to hold on to vista) Ill then just be reinstalling it for general everyday use... but Ive only had XP for 3 years now (the same install, runs great) - the one box I loaded vista business onto I hardly ever use (it has 4+ in every category except video card, its an ati x300se, so of course it says it cant run aero very well, but I only get minimal lag when I do the 3d windows thingy (which I dont care for much anyways, its just pretty to look at, no real functionality)

Vista will be great once they release service pack 2 for it XD

I bet half those users go back to XP after buying vista, and the store refuses their return because its software.

On a 2nd note, my ultimate key became unusable after only THREE reinstalls (Retail). And I had to spend 7 hours on the phone complaining to them before they finally gave me a new product key over the phone. Whats up with that, thats never happened for me on XP.
Reinstalled mine like eight times and haven't had that problem. Only problem I had is that it said my product was already being used, but I had installed and activated it just a few hours prior to reinstalling it (yet again) and reactivating.

I had to reinstall so many times because the hard drive was dying
