most people don't hate vista....
I say that because you cannot say something so assumptive...
You can however, say most people who don't like Vista, do not know what they are really doing...
for example, it is a new OS, designed for new machines...hence it has high demands to run it...
aforementioned people will refuse to acknowledge this, buy Vista, can't get it to run well....and blame the OS.
similar people will buy firewall apps and complain that it pops up messages to block things....you want to slap those people in the face
none of your problems exist for me because I am a MINIMALLY intelligent consumer. I actually know what I am doing, rather than not...and blaming something because of my ineptitude.
other run of the mill examples:
buy a skateboard, don't know how to skate, skateboard/skateboarding is stupid
buy an HDTV, don't use HD sources, complain the HDTV sucks
buy widescreen movies for a 4:3 tv and complain of the black bars
buy 4:3 movies for a 16:9 tv and complain of the non ws format
etc etc...I prefer to be more logical and less irrational
