What's wrong with vista?

Compatibility with a lot of older programs, some even microsoft programs which they have not/will not release patches for...

Vista has a ton of problems with networking. I worked the last few months as a pc technician and people brought their pc's in all the time with connection issues. Many times, when their product was brand-new right out of the box.

My friend and I did extensive personal testing with vista on multiple machines against XP on the same machines.
These were real valid tests, not ones off some websites.

And we found vista to be slower, not only in GAMES by as much as 10-15%.
But also in 20-25 other programs and tasks, with the exception of only a couple programs.

So now, tell me vista is better?

Edit- Also i've seen some very bad bugs with vista, I had one lady come in a few weeks ago, and her comp would crash everytime she downloaded something to her desktop.
And I've seen other similar ones. So all you fanboi's can shut up about how great it is, because the only experience you have with it is with one computer. And you obviously haven't even needed to test out what works and doesn't, you just say that it works with everything you have.
Well guess what, most people don't use/need exactly what you do, so there.

aero desktop and all of Vista's extra BS does have its downsides. Gaming it is slower than XP. XP does use less resoursces. Moddified DirectX 10 is available for XP. I enjoy my Vista experience more than XP. There are games for vista only however there are mods that allow XP to play these games as well. Vista is using these new games to promote the sales of the new operating system Vista. Businesses around Kansas City are starting to roll over into Vista, The new service pack will be available soon, hang in there Vista users

Just because you have luck with it, doesn't mean everyone does.

My whole point is that the majority of users are experiencing a lot of bugs and problems. And even if you don't, you can't argue with the
Loss in performance! Why switch to a slower OS??
I'd rather get the most for my money out of my machine.
If you don't care about having a slower comp, then go for it.

The only things that didn't work were CoreTemp and TAT, cause of some missing driver. This is not a mistake on Microsoft's side, but on the developer's side.


I don't get you people. You have a bad opinion of Vista for no reason whatsoever. It's kinda like these wannabe kids at school that imitate the "cool" kids, trying to fit in, but ending up looking lame. You guys just decide to jump on the bandwagon.

Like spelling errors that caught on to the English language.
I've installed it for a week at a time, twice, a few months apart and have formatted both times. Why?

1) Slow
2) Sucks ram like a hoover
3) Compatibility problems: Ati tool doesn't work,
4) It's unstable, with a propensity just to shut down even at stock clocks on hours of orthos stable hardware. I think it might because of the above.
5) DX10 is worthless.
6) One acronym three letters, DRM.
7) SPDIF anyone? Oh yeah, you can't use that with HD content.
9) Vista ready MONITORS?
10) ATItray tools corrupted the sidebar irreparably.

On and on and on.
