Default Why is Vista so bad?

I've had it enough to say what I say....I have Ultimate 64-bit...it's terrible. It crashes with programs 70% of the time I open things...why cant they fix anything on it? There is nothing wrong with my PC...the OS is just garbage...I will give it that your able to close things down really fast in it but that's just about it...It can't run any games even if it does support Vista. I've already tried out Windows 7 and I like how many processes are in the start-up (like 10) the OS is actually runnable Anyone else here getting tired of Vista crashing?

EDIT: Could the crashing possibly be from some "bad" versions of my progams? (((if you get what I mean)) my OS isn't bad though...

Why is Vista so bad?

In my experience, it's not bad at all. It's run everything I've installed on it. Games, burning programs, graphics editors, you name it. I have Vista Home Premium SP1 x64.

I have never had any problems with Vista, I don't think it is bad at all.

Default Re: Why is Vista so bad?

I've put together a new system this past week and I'm still deciding which OS I want to use, so I am interested in the trouble you have had with Vista. In the last few days I've had Vista Ultimate 32 bit, XP pro 32 bit, and now Win 7 64 bit installed. I haven't run across any problems with any of them other than RAM limits. I have 8GB installed, so it looks like I need a 64 bit OS to make use of it. XP pro 64 bit is on order, so for now I'm enjoying Win 7 64 bit.

Can you describe in greater detail the problems you are having with Vista Ultimate 64 bit? Is it primarily games giving you trouble? [edit] I guess I'm a slow typer, you answered that before I asked.[end edit]

Is anything overclocked? I overclocked a lot once upon a time but got tired of dealing with instability.

Did you have a different OS on your system before? XP maybe? and was it stable?
