90% of the complaints would fall in two camps, people that were experiencing slow lagged up machines because Vista was actually a lot more resource intensive than anything else at the time. Microsoft/OEM's caused that one by shipping every bottom of the barrel e-machines desktop with 512mb of ram as Vista upgrade ready and horrendously underrating the minimum required specs. Last was people being "annoyed" by the UAC pop-ups. This was actually a huge step forward at the time seeing as every other OS built for security has a tight UAC/permission model like that. The people that didn't like it were idiot Winduh's users still running their desktop in admin mode for everything like it's 1995, the same guys that likely still do and get owned when they download an exe/bat off a torrent.
Agreed on both. By the end Vista was very very similar to what 7 was at launch.

Bob wasn't awful for kids, pretty sure i remember my siblings using it. Clippy was pure evil.
