I listened to This Week in Tech on the way into work today and Leo and the gang were still trashing Windows Vista. Leo called it “this generation’s ME” in reference to the ill-fated Windows ME release just over eight years ago. When Vista first came out, I believe liked it quite a bit. Patrick Norton and taken shots at Vista for months though. But now it seems like the entire TWIT crew hates Vista.
Several friends have mentioned that installing Vista SP1 has fixed a few problems, but I’m happy with my XP Pro install. I can’t think of a single reason to move to Vista while I can think of many reasons not to including speed and stability. Since when is a slower machine an “upgrade”?
When was the last time a major software release was met with so much disdain? Are you running Vista or have you decided to stick with XP? Or did you bail on Windows and move to the Mac or Linux?
