Windows XP had a slew of problems when it was released. Windows Vista has a number of problems now that it's released.
People said XP was crap. People say Vista is crap.
Windows XP is now the most widely used operating system, and some would say the most stable. Windows Vista will become the most widely used operating system and the most stable.
See the pattern?
I've been using Windows Vista and Ubuntu for 3 months. In that time period, Ubuntu has frozen more than 6 times and required a restart. My kernel.log has shown nothing wrong. In that same time, Windows Vista has not frozen once.
In my opinion, Windows Vista is getting a bad rap. I feel that once people started trashing it as a worthless OS and comparing it to Windows ME, people just hopped on the "I hate Vista' bandwagon. Many of the issues people claim to be having are not the fault of the OS, but due to poor driver support. Furthermore, don't expect to run a new OS that is supposed to last 3+ years on your old Dell Pentium 2. Lastly, having used Windows 3.1-Windows Vista, Windows Vista is by far one of the best operating system experiences I have had and I look forward to SP1 making it even better.
Do your homework and you will find that Windows Vista is far from the crap-tacular software people claim.
