    Vista runs good with modern hardware and lots of physical memory.

    I have a machine with a 3.4GHz CPU and 3 gigs of RAM, and Vista runs great on it.

    Though, my true love is still my macbook pro and OSX!

    Yes, but you don't exactly get that kind of hardware in a laptop, neither should you need it.

    A friend just ordered a new laptop and it was nothing special by any means and it came with 2gigs of ram and a powerful cpu. So I don't really think it's going to be out of the normal to see laptops pretty powerful and able to handle vista without issue. In fact his machine does run vista and he's had nothing but good things to say about it. Of course he didn't buy the bargain basement $200 laptop so that may explain why his experience with vista on a laptop has been a good one.

    Just got my laptop with Vista home basic on it and I must say I miss Windows XP. I feel a little help less in vista. I mean in Windows Xp they had the most common and the most important things right up there and visible, the same is not true for vista.

    I have 2 gigs of RAM.

    It's out of the normal to see a 3.4GHz laptop.

    Is he the sort of person who buys a laptop because it looks nice?

    Neither did I. I bought the most expensive laptop of it's class at £1500 (That's about $3000).

    That's what I found, apart from the helpless bit. I can use it, and it'll run fine, but it's not as easy-to-use and it eats resources.

    I dont actually hate or am against vista. I think vista is quite good just needs to be expanded.

    I'm very happy with my Windows XP Pro. Vista is too much eye-candy.

    Why Are You All Against Vista

    >> because it Sucks.

    J/K. In all seriousness, its needs to be put out of its misery like WinME.
    It provides little to no value unless you spent money on a new PC

    Two main reasons why Vista it selling as you said:

    1- Hardware prices are dropping ("$200 systems" as you said on another thread)

    2- Every PC you buy "Cheap" now comes with Vista and you have little options to buy it with XP.

    Now do the research on how many people that buy PC's with Vista pre-installed downgrades to XP or another Operating System (or are not happy with Vista and keeps using it because they don't know how to migrate).

    Look at every Poll (Vista or XP) on the Internet, not just DP.

    As I said in another topic. Generally those who are most vocal are those who disagree. Those who agree you have to find them to poll them. One of the reason liberals are more vocal than conservatives, mac fanatics are more vocal than those who use Windows and so on.

    Its simple. If you disagree you are going to make your voice heard. People downgrading is not high or else you would have heard about it.

    Hi, ive only had a few hours of use with Vista, compared to my many years on XP. What i noticed was that the security is crap! It kept asking for confirmation about all exe files! (ok some users are dumb and probably benefit from that) but why make it such an added effort just to run a few programs?
    Personally ill try to stay with XP for as long as possible, or till another version comes out...maybe even switch to linux...ill see how i go

    thanks

    I agree linux is a good alternative and they should have that ask you to run stuff as an add-on or something
