it seems like every single writing posted on the Internet about windows is about how much Vista sucks or how much better XP is vs. vista. have any of these people actually tried getting vista to work on a modern computer? vista is based on the same kernel as xp. the only difference here is some new features. so what are all these problems people are having. not that much has changed. hardware is less compatible until manufactuers write drivers that wont blue screen the machine or make it unstable which is what was happening in XP and 2000. so yes Vista has been optimized to be less prone to crashing that is why some devices arent supported. i have had almost no problems with vista. have any of these writers and bloggers even tried using Vista for more than a week or two? of corse businesses dont want to upgrade from xp, it will cost them thousands for volume licenses but over time they will migrate. down with the naysayers i say. is any1 with me?
