Summary: I am a windows vista user, Aside from the initial driver related issues i have had no problem using this operating system, the operating system to my opinion runs better than xp did.. to those who think that vista is a bad os, heres some food for thought... Every time microsoft came out with a new os there was flaws, if i recall xp didnt exactly have a great start either when it comes to compatibility... but look at xp now..
Pay To Become Microsoft's beta-Testers? NO THANKS!

Summary: When WinXP came out I refused to abandon my reliable Win98SE until SP2 was released and WinXP finally became an operating system (from the experimental eye-candy it first was). Experts advise us to do the same with WinVISTA - yet I do not think this is ever gonna happen... WinVISTA is far WORSE than the initial release of WinXP: NUMEROUS and MAJOR compatibility problems with most third-party Software, Games (well, all games except..
Summary: I was a hard core windows user before vista was released. After having it installed for a couple of months I have delete it. On bran NEW hardware you can expect: Constant BLUE SCREENS, constant serous program freezes that require you to hold the power button shut off, Freezes during most large file transfers causing damage to files, freezing when using external storage devices and much much much more.
Summary: Windows Vista is pretty underrated. Just because Microsoft doesn't have the best track record or anything like that, that doesn't mean Vista is trash. I admit that, like all other operating systems, it has it's bugs and the like, but it's a new operating system and they will be fixed over time with service packs and whatnot.
Summary: I have been heavily involved with the PC and Microsoft O/Ss of all kinds for 13 years. Vista is without a doubt the very best yet. To be without it is do be left behind as in out of date technology. Windows XP is 7 years old if you consider the development time. That is like 14 years in the world outside of Technology. Gil Cheap at twice the Price!
Summary: If you have the hardware, you are going to want this one. It's..... well, different. Early Adopters will have an advantage on the general population. It's pretty cool on an intel based Mac as well. Driver availability will increase rapidly so don't let that hold you back.
Excerpt: Ahora tengo un portátil nuevo, pero mi anterior ordenador fué un sobremesa en el que venía preinstalado un windows Vista Home Premiun. Era la novedad, había leído algo de que no era muy eficaz comparándolo con el XP ya que cambiaba el aspecto pero requería mucho procesamiento para ello a no ser que tuvieras un ordenador megapotente. Yo pensé, siendo el ordenador nuevo y viniendo preinstalado de fábrica, será porque funciona bien...
Summary: Ich besitze Home Premium 64 Bit und Ultimate 64Bit. Hatte bis dato keinen Absturz, bzw. irgendwelche Probleme mit Vista !!! Wenn man die richtige Hardware dazu hat, dann ist daß das beste Betriebssystem bis dato für 64 Bit-Systeme. Viele reden es schlecht - aber das war schon immer so, wenn ein neues Windows raus kam !!! Die früher XP schlecht gemacht haben, die machen heute Vista schlecht und loben XP - was für ein Witz !!!
