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?

1) they needed to stop to pull resource to rescue the company from the utter security hole that was XP, and at the same time made sure that Vista wouldn't suffer from the same flaws, they probably should have done it two years earlier, but at least they did make that decision.

2) the fact is that Vista IS a very good OS, no need to discuss this really, especially not if you think Windows 7 is good. Otherwise please come up with the major changes that makes Windows 7 so much better then vista, fact is, they are all minor improvements.

3) I had 2GB on my Pc one year prior to Vista being released, but besides that, how is that Microsoft fault ? The recommended requirements have always been 1GB of internal memory, and that didn't seem excessive at the time.

Windows 7 RTM x64

Agreed, if i remember right as i was part of windows xp testing and vista, the kernal had to be changed. The rebuilt the whole thing around 2003 if i remember right. Due to big security issues.And now many people are actually thanking MS for doing it. The XP kernal just couldnt cut what they wanted to do.From my point of view yes 7 is better but imagine what vista would have been like if it was as streamlined and look similar to 7? Compare the kernals of both. You will find that they share a hell of a lot.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Retail)

Win 7 is based on the vista kernal, but everything has been lovingly and exactingly optimized and further developed with great attention to detail and how people really use their computers. 7 x64 runs amazingly better for me on my 2.2 GHz Core 2 duo laptop with 4 GB ram & nvidia discrete graphics (same equip & specs as I ran Vista x64 on). Hence, I believe I am justified in thinking 7 to be a vast improvement over Vista.

However, although I found Vista sp2 (I already forget if there was an SP3 for it, if there was I installed it) frequently to be sluggish and having niggling issues I could never completely resolve, I still basically liked the OS. I just like 7 a heck of a lot more.

pparks1 was right

Apple people are die hard trendites. What we say or think means nothing to them as they are indoctrinated. I honestly would use Apple OS if it played games , was cheaper etc. I looked at Linux plenty of times and would use it for a cafe for example. Windows 7 will make in roads in to the XP market. Cannibalization of the market that would not go Vista and perhaps a few of the people who were temped over.

Windows 7 X64

Windows 7 is a great OS so far I don't read too many people disputing that. I have never had issues running Vista either but I have more than capable hardware. People put vista down because there computers were never capable of running it. Now with newer hardware its not a problem thats the difference. A lot of people have moved to dual core and higher end video cards. I will not be upgrading machines with AMD XP processors, 512mb of RAM, and onboard video to windows 7. That is a configuration only to be run by windows xp. Windows XP was designed in a time when those were good specs not anymore. If thats what you have for a computer its time to upgrade. Why would you upgrade an OS but not the hardware?

Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit / XP Home sp3

One of the only real things about Vista I didn't like was the annoying window that pops up everytime you try to open a program, like are you sure you really want to open this program? Well let me rethink this I did click open so let me confirm I did that and the run this program fairy didn't just try and play with my system. Oh and the DRM. I of course could be completely wrong since I have about combined 10 hrs on Vista. My moms laptop came with it so when she had a problem or a question I would have to try and learn how Vista worked compared to Xp in the few minuets I would spend on it. However if we needed to go thru Vista to get to 7 then so be it. I do belive that MS is going to get that XP user jump ship to 7 they were hopeing for with
Vista. IMHO

Mushkin rocks
I bought a Mushkin SSD from Newegg on April 4, 2012. A couple of days ago it died - the first dead SSD of my lot. I sent an email to Mushkin complaining and asked them what can be done about that. Within a couple of hours they came back and said that would replace it. That is what I call...
