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.

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

Cats & dogs both have their place.... cats in dim sims......
My point exactly. Holy wars are best not fought. It does seem strange that a vista proponent went out and bought a win 7 machine though doesnt it?

She doth protest too much

I take full responsibility for accepting "sage" advice recommending the purchase of Vista SP3 aka Win7.

I break my boiled eggs at the big end too!

windows 7 Pro 64Bit
 
 

My first computer purchase was a used Dell Latitude C600 from ebay. It came with XP, this was back in 2005-2006. When I managed to hose my XP install I did not have a disk. I went to Wal-Mart and got Windows Vista (it was cheaper than a XP disk) which they still had at that time. I had a few problems with the install, I bought an upgrade disk not knowing the workaround for a clean install. Tech support got me going and I happily used Vista for quite a while. Even on my old hardware (512MB max ram) I was happy with Vista. I never had any program compatibility issues and it was fairly fast. I just don't agree with all the complaining that comes up when Vista is mentioned. It was solid although windows 7 is much better, Vista was still okay and I learned most of what I know about PC's on that OS. Just my 2 cents.

Good enough to be four cents! :)
