I run it on 5, 2 laptops and 3 desktops I have no trouble on any of them. I have not seen any connection or networking problems. I work on allot of peoples computers for them most issues I have seen with Vista is people not knowing what they are doing. Not Vista's fault and if you give Vista enough resources it is faster than XP.
But since you have done such intensive testing and know all there is to know I guess I am wrong. And by the way you just how many people computers that were running XP did you work on that had connection problems. I have worked on allot of them most of which were people not knowing what they were doing. Quite frankly the problems you listed can also be said equally about XP.
Yes Vista is slower at gaming but that isn't a Vista problem it is a driver problem from the developers. And with the progress they are making it won't be long before Vista is faster. Most compatibility problems you talk about are driver issues. Technology advances every day if you wish to stay behind go ahead but before too long there will not be any programs that are written for XP.
Hopefully by then you will realize that these are not Vista problems but software driver problems that the developers of the software are either not going to provide updated drivers or are working on making updated drivers which should have been done long ago. They only had 2 years to get them out.
Any way I will enjoy running Vista and playing DirectX10 games as they come out.
IT'S STILL A PROBLEM LOL. whether it's vista's fault or vista's driver's fault.
It's still a problem that makes it not as good.
And no you were completely wrong, most people aren't as computer-illiterate as you think. And how can a person turn off the internet with a BRAND-NEW computer? Plug it up and it doesn't work. So they brought it to me.
and it was vista.
I also talked to a lot of business men who had bought 10 new comps for their business and had lots of problems.
I have had a ton of people come in asking for me to install xp on their new vista machines.
