but on this subject you are bias in your opinion because you want vista to work. maybe it's because you were an early pioneer in it.
despite what you think, people didn't hate xp when it first came out. only the old dos heads didn't like xp. they would come to later change their mind once they realize that xp was easier to use than dos. the service packs didn't change their minds
this was the one (and only) big issue with xp. if you had roxio easy cd creator 5 and under (million of people did as it was the preferred and easiest cd writing software of the time) and you didn't have enough sense to not install directcd through a custom install (which million of people didn't enough sense to do) which treated a cd as a floppy disc. then you would end up with a crashed computer (bsod)
roxio seemed unwilling at the time to fix the issue because roxio was the market to cd writing like norton was to anti viruses. people came to find out that nero would work with xp and it now had a new Feature. it could burn video dvd. if you could get an unencrypted dvd to your hard drive, then nero would burn it. roxio had plegded to never included this feature. after a few millions in losses they changed their mind
guess what happened? everybody flocked to nero
vista is not the same as xp. it is a bloated slowed down version of xp this bull about vista having as many issues as xp when xp first came out is part of their brainwashing tactics to get you to like it.
you can say all that you want, but the simple fact is america is built on brainwashing. they have just got a little too stupid with it in the past 7 years. corperations plays a major part in brainwashing
