Is it my imagination or am I one of the few who actually found Vista to be a great OS?
I feel oh so sorry for those poor, lost souls who prefer to accept rumors and speculation over fact. These are the people who decided that Vista was bad because they allowed OEM and computer stores to sell them poor hardware, or they listed to the Apple ads without realizing that it was nothing but propoganda.
All those people who decided to stick with XP are going to have the hardest time of all moving over to Windows 7. Sure, Vista had it's problems in the start, but so did XP, and they've forgotten that. I have yet to see one single shred of evidence that conclusively proves beyond all doubt that Vista is as bad as some people believe.
And I'm not thinking of "I heard that so-and-so had such-and-such a problem" or "Vista runs too slowly on my new laptop with 1GB of memory" or "UAC stops me from doing anything" or "I can't find x64 drivers
for my 8 year old sound card".
We all know by experience that 95% of what gave Vista such a bad rep was not the fault of Vista, but of hardware manufacturers that installed it onto under-specced hardware, or got caught napping when it came time to update driver
software for their hardware products.
