I have to disagree. Years ago, I my family bought this computer (sorry if it seems like I'm advertising, but I'm not): eMachines Official Site - - T5088 Product Details

512MB of RAM yet the manufacturer claims it to be Vista ready? The performance was incredibly horrible (Vista -even without Aero- was using ~490MB of my 512, barely enough RAM left over to do anything else), up until I tried out Windows 7. It runs fine with 512MB of RAM plus Aero (using 320MB, enough left over to surf the web which is what I need). I later spent $100 and bought 2GB of RAM, now Vista runs fine on it. The point is the manufacturer (eMachines) built the computer way under powered for Vista. Go look up other customer reviews for other 512MB Vista machines (such asT5082) and you can see why people get fed up with Vista. Windows 7 runs nicely on machines with 512MB of RAM which Vista can't do.

I doubt that Windows 7 runs fine on 512mb machines, in fact even for XP 512mb is stretching it.

Unless of course you don't run anything but the OS.

There's a whole thread about Windows 7 on 512MB of RAM with users reporting it runs fine: How well does Windows 7 handle 512MB?

As I said earlier, I ran Windows 7 fine with internet browsing with only 512MB of RAM, until I decided to buy 2GB so I can make Vista run nicely.

I was talking to someone * in the know about such matters* we had a very interesting conversation about vista and 7. Actually the similarities between the two are very close. The main diff between the the two is a better and faster GUI. Easier to navigate and the obvious and most interesting one ( to me anyway) is homegroups.
Now vista bashing people please bare in mind that Vista was a over 5 years in developement. This led to the public expecting nothing short of virtual reality from this OS. Yes vista fell short and by some way too. But considering the actual expectations from it the figures tell a diff story. Yes a lot of us have had horror stories with Vista, me too with my new laptop. But remember in a few months when you buy a computer/laptop preinstalled with 7, imagine all that crapware that will be installed. Vista was revolutionary, not a lot of people realize the effort and work and not to mention the restarting of vista from scratch half way through development to use a new kernal. Im sure if people had been waiting 5 years for 7 then opinions would be different. As it is i think vista bashers who love 7 actaully have to nod your caps to vista cos without it you would not have 7. At least 85% of 7 is actually vista. Remember that next time you vista hate and 7 celebrate

1. Restarting half-way through is not called a lot of work. It's called bad management.

2. How can you say we should thank Vista? If Vista was very good, Windows 7 might even have been better than what it is now...you shouldn't make what if's into facts.

3. Hardly anyone had over 1GB memory in 2006, so Vista's design was poor. Microsoft have even acknowledged this, just google it.

4. Take this example:

Company A makes a bad car, after 3 years it makes a great car.

Company B makes a very good car, after 3 years it makes a great car.

Which company has been more efficient?

yes.....Vista was a resource hog, but if you had the resources you never had a problem.....

my Vista install runs like a charm, boot up is pretty slow but give it 10 mins & its just as fast (if not faster) than ''7''

there's many instances where Vista still has the edge on ''7'' just due to the fact its far more optimized ''currently'' than ''7''

pre SP1 was pretty ropey & i agree when compiling Vista they never really catered for the ''mid-range'' PC, but now Vista is a SUPER OS

Well yes you should thank vista. Examine 7 closly and you will see why i say that. And as far as bad management is concerened. Perhaps so, but are not most companies guilty of such things? but when you factor into it WHAT exactly they had to do, i think no-one can deny a lot of effort was put into it. 'Not a lot of work' as you put it.
And who said anything about what if's? Its not a what if. Its a pure fact.
2006? i had 2 gig. Vista IS a good operating system simple as. Yes it has problems. But as far as im concerened you should be thanking it for the development of 7. Nothing to do with efficency as you put it but ambitious plans that due to limitations of certain things then had to be changed. People want everything from an operating system, vista whilst bloated tried its best to deliver it. Notice now most of it is striped out for 7. I firmly believe 7 is what vista should have been without a doubt. LOL over time, Vista will be mentioned in the same breath as Neptune or Millenium.
