Was being the operative word. Call win 7 vista SP 3 if you must to salve a wounded ego but time marches on.

While some see the value of Vista, it was the reason that I used Linux for almost two years ... Windows 7 was the reason I came back....

At 1st Windows Vista was a pain for me. My brother build a brand new computer, and it had all the rights spec for windows Vista, expect it kept freezing on start up. He instailled XP back... and then i mucked it up while doing a system restore so he put Vista back on.... Vista worked perfectially after that and i fell in love with it. However i had a BSOD problem after it woke from sleep

And I will be saying the same thing about win 7 no doubt. There were satisfied Vista users (more so after the SP's) but there were also a large subset of intelligent users who just could not get it to run on compatible hardware.

Anecdotal evidence aside win 7 already has a larger turnover rate than vista.

It is like cats and dogs, ATI and Nvidia, mac and pc. A holy war. Not many will change their minds and all are entitled to their opinions.

For all those users that did not experience the agony I am glad for you.

My tears of empathy hurt as well


Oh, and a belated welcome to all XP forever! members





Realistically, in the grand scheme of things - who really gives a bowel movement about whether you liked Vista or not?


I've already wiped... I only stop by now and then to address the Klingons

Which just goes to show that fools never learn.

There were satisfied Vista users (more so after the SP's) but there were also a large subset of intelligent users who just could not get it to run on compatible hardware.
What's this 'were' business - there ARE satisfied Vista users alive & kicking.... & using Win 7 also!

The large subset of "intelligent " users can't by definition have had compatible hardware. Compatible with what? {not with Vista}


Anecdotal evidence aside win 7 already has a larger turnover rate than vista.
Larger turnover is a result of dinosaurs too mean to buy Vista & stuck with XP until lack of support & disintegrating, obsolete hardware drove them screaming into a new OS /PC....

It is like cats and dogs, ATI and Nvidia, mac and pc. A holy war. Not many will change their minds and all are entitled to their opinions.

Cats & dogs both have their place.... cats in dim sims......
