It isn't just windows bashing. He provides backup to what he says in links that he posts in the articles. Like this one... http://news.com.com/2100-1046_3-6177619.html

And this one....
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/6331959.stm

For the record, I try to make sure that people I quote have provided substance to what they write. I think he does a pretty good job of doing that. But if you just skim his articles and assume he is just bashing, I can see how that might be your conclusion.

Not really. There's still a million problems.
Half the computers we sale ( I work at circuitcity part-time ) come back the next day people complaining about connection problems and other things.

Vista sucks balls, and the majority of mainstreamers hate it.

I have two questions for you guys who gripe about vista.
how many of you actually have tried it vs how many are just complaining due to what you have heard? beta's don't count forthis one

the second question would you like ms to bring windows ME back?

Acers are junk, we sell a lot of them, not because they are good, but because they are cheap. The biggest problem with them and vista is that their acer software that comes with it (backup, security etc.) doesn't work with vista (the acer security software crashes msn 8.1), if you take all that crap off they are fine. IMO acer is a computer company that really doesn't know much about computers. All their pcs were still running fat32 until they had to switch to vista. Oh and did I mention they use the cheapest no name mobos in their desktops? Half of them you can't even stick a video card into because it blue screens the computer. Their market is mostly in europe as well, not north america. I hear customers complain about vista too all the time, but when I ask them why they don't like it most of them can't give me a legitimate reason. The other people that are complaining are running software that is like 10years old, and my question to these people is "Why did you bother to upgrade at all?" If it ran fine before there was really no reason to upgrade so you have no one to blame but yourselfs.

I think I can decide for myself what Vista is or not. I could care less what Acer has to say about it. I think it is a good OS, too bad I will never pay money for an Acer notebook. Horrible products.

To be honest, the majority of Acer systems I see in my local PC retailers are always low spec systems. No wonder they complain about Vista when they install it on Celeron based PC's with 1GB of RAM. Acer are a good company in my eyes, though they're better suited to the low of the desktop spectrum.
post #38 of 74
yeah i find alot of the people i met who complained about vista had it installed on notbooks with single cores or low end dual cores with 512-1gb memory or even desktops with 512mb memory and a single core. Alot of the time people comps can really handle vista to well so they just blame the os. Now im not saying its perfect cuase its not but it works for me perfectly.

Only? There are a lot of PC makers out there.

OT: I can't believe all of these Vista fanboys. I've used it for weeks/months and wasn't impressed at all. They are still bugs, they didn't even implement all of the features they were going to. Hopefully the next windows release will be better. Microsoft should just stick to working on OSs so they can at least get ONE thing right.

Such as? I'm just curious because people always say it has bugs etc. but don't give real examples. The only problem I've encountered (and I'm using the 64bit version) was when I installed the beta nvidia drivers. Removing them fixed my problem heh.
