There is absolutely nothing wrong with Vista. I used it for years and never had any serious issues.

Many people were trying to run it on computers that could barely run XP.

Bad news is always newsworthy.......

My Vista Ultimate laptop is still my "work horse." My Win7 Ultimate currently languishes. Yes I know that will change.......but I do love my Vista OS.
In my experience Vista's most virulent critics are those who NEVER used it.
Well said and very true...

I've experienced the same scenario.
Most people can't tell you why they don't like vista, except someone said it wasn't good.

I agree with you JMH, however I had bad experiences with Vista. I bought Vista and never got it working on my 2 Dell computers. Dell certified them Vista Ready. My mother bought a laptop with Vista and has had nothing but problems. (To be upgraded this month).

I went back to Windows XP on my Dell machines after fighting with Vista for 9 months. I then went from XP to 7 and I have not had any issues. Just my 2 cents.
What were the bad experiences?

Must have been before you found Windows Vista Forums
