The faults were not worth the upsides of Vista. It was an open Beta customers got charged for.

Lmao, @4:10 Apple Users experience that on a daily basis. XD Apple literally forces us to upgrade and makes it public that they do.

The main and prominent feature I absolutely adored in Vista was Aero. I'm an eye-candy kind of person and love for my computer to (or try to) look like a futuristic type of OS. I absolutely loved the amount of translucency and "glass" look and feel of the OS. Now, unfortunately Windows is (in my opinion) extremely unappealing in terms of visual appearance. It's UI has become bland and plain, and very ... Elementary.

I am glad you mentioned right at the end, Windows ME. Because that was an abortion of an OS. And from my point of view, it was great! Not because it worked well, but because it didn't, and I got work from diagnosing and correcting the boat load of problems that OS had. So thank you MS :) And it was the same with Vista.
I would add, that on the ram front, here in the UK. Almost all desktops I came across were shop (store) bought from 1 of 3 places by people who just didn't know NOT to buy their PC's from these oultets (my personal point of view, and only a theory). Were Dixons, PC World and Curry's. All owned by the same parent company. And they all without exception didn't have enough ram to run 100 metres, let alone alone an OS. And I believe, although I can't prove it. They sold PC's on purpose with not enough ram, so the unwashed had to upgrade their ram to make their systems actually get somewhere near to what was advertised.

Vista wasn’t that bad if you ran a higher end system. The major problem was that 7 should have been the OS that they should have debuted in its place. The overhead of Vista was much higher than was commonly in use at the time and that was on Microsoft.

Vista was just fine - it (like most of the others) was just launched with bugs. Never get a new OS the first two years it's out, preferably more like 5 years. Just like phones. Let some other jackass have all the problems, stay with an OS that has actual support (and by that I mean community, not from Microsoft). Every time the platform changes, developers themselves haven't really gotten used to it, and 3rd party support is even worse.

I won't buy anything that runs windows anymore and haven't for a very long time. To me their software is just horrible and full of junk. The Xbox is the only thing I will own and even on that the software could be a whole lot better and it's very laggy. Xp was the golden days.

Actually I preferred Vista to XP but 7 was a major improvement. As a matter of fact I wish I kept my windows 7. 8 sucked and 10 is okay but I miss a lot of the programs and features that came with 7.

Vista and 7 are the same product .. in 2007 the hardware was too poor for vista(and 7) .. and all hardware producers delayed vista 64 drivers... Vista 64 SP2 is Windows 7 sp0... Same thing was Windows 8... Windows 8 is what NOW users want from Windows 10.... No Cortana - No useless things - No forced updates - No Spy - no edge.... Windows 8.1 is the best OS right now... On recent hardware is very very very fast and everything work's on It.

It's one of the very best, possibly second after Windows 98SE. Vista and XP didn't have pure DOS, but could handle it very well in the vast majority of cases. 98SE takes the prize largely thanks to pure DOS with DVD support.

plot twist.. windows 7, windows 8, windows 8.1, and windows 10 are just iterations of vista. the issues with vista was largely releasing when the bulk of hardware was XP era and the majority of hardware in the world plus hardware drivers for the vista ready hardware that did exist were not ready for it.

In 2009 i bought a new dell inspiron 545 which is still running to this day. It came with vista 64. And 6 months later... Win7update. Was vista that bad? Not really.. But i couldnt run some games.. Especially spellforce. Win7 solved that.
Vista64 seemed stable... At least for me. There was only so far i could upgrade the computer but it ran well with both os at the time. Vista32 was the buggy one.

I had Vista on a Dell inspiron 1501 laptop and I didn’t have any issues with it. It had plenty RAM and dedicated graphics though. I encountered many computers sold packaged with Vista that should never have been. Big performance increases if you disabled Aero.

I actually had no real issues with Windows Vista back in the day. The only thing I really didn't like was the Widget stuff. It looked and felt awful even for 2007 standards. But I didn't have to use that so it wasn't a problem. Windows Vista was fine for what it was. Never saw it as a particularly bad OS. When I think about a bad Windows OS, *Windows ME* comes to mind. Random crashes ALL the freakin time.

Vista was never bad. The problem is people tried to run it on compatible hardware, not capable hardware. There is a very huge difference. Just because the hardware could run Vista never meant it would run it well. Vista was a bit ahead of its time. By the time 7 came out people have capable hardware for the most part and often tried to use that as an example of 7 being better, and, while it was better it was not due to the OS per se but the hardware the OS ran on. Sure 7 was a better experience by UI standards but other than that it really wasn't much if at all better than Vista. People just didn't understand, and still try to ignore these facts and push their opinion as the only factor involved.

My personal theory is Microsoft is sharing the development costs of the next gen operating system with their customers, half way through the development. Also the customers do a paid beta testing of the next os. I was using Win98SE back in the day and was quite happy with it. The millenium was released. We bought and used it for some time and reported the bugs to microsoft. After having us beta testing for sometime, microsoft released winXP which was great and was built on the eXPerience gained from millenium. Then i had to buy a new computer which came with Vista that had problems. So we beta tested that. Which led to 7 and blablabla. You know the story.
Win95 : Good
Win98 : Bad
Win98SE : Good
Win Millenium : Bad
WinXP: Good
Win Vista: Bad
Win 7: Good
Win 8: Bad
Win 8.1: Good
Win 10: Well, i switched to MacOs so i should not really comment. But i hear good things.

I loved it bought the Ultimate 64 edition, which supported the apps and drivers of xp probably why I did not experience the incompatibility software and hardware issues, how ever the constant pop up security permissions was quite annoying every little click here or there, open anything and you had to give permission or confirm what you just clicked on!! }:( how ever when you turned this function OFFF!!!!!!!! it was a very nice system!!!! Halo's and Angels :) :) before that the gremlins were all over your system

Well, MS is well known by launching crappy OS, followed by good OS, followed by crappy OS, followed by good OS.... it is just their business plan... they release a entirelly buggy, empty full of flws system, collect the gigantic amount of error logs from users that misleaded bought or were forced to use their crappy OS, work over it and release a good OS with all the problems solved, and than sell it again....
just listing:
Windows 3.1 - bad
Windows 3.11 - Good
Windows 95 - Crappy
Windows 98 - good
Windows Millenium - damn bad
Windows XP - very good
Windows Vista - oh my god...
Windows 7 - damn good
Windows 8 - so bad that they kinda made new early patch to 8.1 that was still pretty damn bad...
Windows 10 - well, windows 8 and 8.1 were so bad that they were so ashame that they gave it for free for those who had windows 8... And it is okish...
But the best Windows move so far wa putting Linux mini kernel inside of it... now we are talking... no more cmd nor Putty nor whatever necessary to do actual work...

OEMs ruined Vista. Yes it was more hardware intensive but graphically it's a good looking UI. 7 polished everything up and made Aero what it was supposed to be. I'm still on 7 mainly for the UI since it looks so great compared to boring 8 and 10.
