Annoying UAC prompt, slow boot-up/shutdown incompatible device drivers installed are just one of the few complaints I can name now but I like its sidebar desktop gadgets.
Thats wasnt vista fault..
The hardware wasnt ready at that time
With such animation and aero thing
Thats was become power resource OS compared to lightweight XP
I'm not sure whether my first or my second laptop came with Windows Vista but it worked well enough for me. I used XP on my desktop till it was discontinued and by then my PC was already at least 10 years old. My PC became obsolete so only using laptops now.
don't know how many are still on board that ship. but i abandoned it along time ago. windows 7 has been the sweet spot for me. windows 10 was a mess and buggy. glad i returned to 7
i think the general majority has laid it to rest long ago, ha
i only ever saw Vista on a friend's PC, personally. and the only things i remember from it were the aggressive UAC parenting your every move and the sidebar with its widgets. the sidebar actually seemed kinda neat at the time... widgets never really took off, though, did they? used a few early in Windows 7, mainly for hardware monitoring purposes, but ultimately abandoned them in favor of better options.
also didn't Vista bluescreen during one of Microsoft's presentations back then?
