MS never corrected most problems with its "new" OS's while they were still "new". Grab vista while you can so you can see its development firsthand b4 the next buggy POS arrives.
i agree. it is amazing how short term our memories are. XP was GARBAGE when it came out. now it is great. it took years to work out all the problems. quality drivers were especially scarce. my guess is that most of the people on here are in their mid-teens so they dont really know of the time that XP sucked and windows 2000 was all the rage. hell! i even remember people complaining about windows 2000 and they wanted better support for windows 98
