Talking Operating System Criticism

I am board today, so I am opening this thread for people to criticize operating systems.


I'll start, as a lot of users here know, I am a BIG Windows XP fan and hate Windows 7 and 8.

What about you?

I still dont know what the big issue with Vista is, it's a good operating system.

I have never had an issue with it or XP but have had A lot of iisues with 7 and 8, so I dont use it.

Think Vista was bad as they brought it out when the hardware as not so capable of running it, I much prefer Windows 7.

I am currently using windows xp on my Acer aspire and I don't mind it. I am still thinking about whether or not removed xp completely and put windows 7 on or partition the drive with XP still there and install windows 7. Using my grandparents laptop which had vista I must say that it can be very slow and horrible to use, They have a desktop with XP that they don't use very often and doesn't get have Internet anymore as they disconnected there dial-up and got a broadband stick for there laptop.

Yes when Vista first came out pre installed on computers, some only had 512 Mb of RAM, just plain silly.

At least 1.5 GB of ram for Vista, 512 for XP (no SP 1, 2, 3)

The only thing I would change in Windows 7 is UAC (its irritating) but then mine is switched off so I never see it
