MY biggest mistake was to give up XP.
I purchased a new computer with Vista just over a year ago. During the whole time Vista has been a real pain in the backside. It was incompatible with most of my equipment and software which has resulted is having to upgrade everything at BIG additional costs. Problems solved - not at all....
My Vista system crashes regularly on almost a weekly basis without any cause or warning. I have used computers right from from the days of Sinclair, Commodore Pet 64 right through to the present day high flying machines and up until Vista I have usually been able to sort most issues. Even if I resort to paying for "professional" help after numberous wasted hours they still are unable to resolve the issues any quicker or better than I, if at all. I associate with many professional IT people and I have yet to find one who has anything positive to say about Vista.
I often have to revert back to using an eight year old laptop with XP installed just to get my work done on time. This simply shouldn't be !
Normally, when one buys a new piece of equipment or service which is "not fit for purpose" it would be expected for the responsible company to provide the solution free of charge. Microsoft has introduced an operating system thats so unstable that I'm dammed if I'm going to fork out any more money to rectify what most people agree is a flawed operating system.
It's a cheek and a disgrace that Microsoft expect the users to purchase the additional and extremely high price charged for Windows 7 to rectifly the faulty Vista software. Microsoft should be accountable and concede that they have not been fair to it's previously loyal customers.
My future purchases will definitely not have any more Microsoft products.
Other issues that spring to mind:
1) despite it's massive bloated size it still can't protect itself from viruses, so the first thing you are advised to do is buy additional anti-virus software. Couldn't they have built virus protection in?
2) They have changed some of the standard parts of the windows inetrface so that they neither look the same, work the same, or have been given different names. (for example, the old 'Add/Remove Programmes' has been renamed and tucked away somewhere else - why?) Some of the explorer windows are different and more limited.
3) Vista has some minor improvements (when it breaks it fixes itself, but think about it, is that really an improvement?) but basically it was just a big money grabbing exercise. Why else would they release it when Windows 7 was already well in the pipeline?
4) Slow, unless you buy a very powerful (expensive) computer. Is that progress?!
