The thing I never understand is why people vehemently defend XP. You know, it was shit when it first came out. People hated the idea of leaving 98 to go to XP, and ME was a joke. SP2 made XP usable and I don't know why people don't remember this. Everyone seems to recall XP being diamond encrusted diamond from day 1. It wasn't. SP2 was heralded as a bloody godsend/savior. Everything from there was gravy. Vista, if you have the hardware, is faster due to its pre-cache and all that. A boot to desktop takes a fraction of the time (fresh install to fresh install) and reinstalling the operating system in Vista is probably 10x easier. It feels that much less painful anyways. Networking issues of XP are solved in Vista far better then they ever got solved in XP. And low and behold, by Service Pack 1, most of people's complaints with the product were remedied. Did they try the product? Well no, they'd already started hating it. Yet we have people offended because they aren't upgrading their OS and people suggest they should. "I will stick with my choice because its the best ever", they say. You know what I say about XP? It was good, but I don't regret upgrading. Vista at the beginning was a piece of shit, just like XP. Vista now has been nothing but smooth to me. BSODs? Rarely. See, instead of locking up, most times windows kills the driver and reloads it in Vista. In XP if that driver failed, BSOD. In Vista, you get a handy little message saying something, like Nvlddmkm has stopped working, blah blah restarted. That's it, you go along your way. What do I say about Vista? It's good, but I don't mind upgrading. Windows 7 so far has been pretty good. Nothing deal breaker, nothing really to piss me off. My only complaint is that everything is different because its new. I don't blame the OS for this, just like I didn't blame Vista for being new. I don't hate XP, it didn't kill my family. I don't hate Vista, it didn't rape my sister. I probably won't hate Win7 because it probably won't do some treacherous thing to me. So why the hell does everyone else hate these OSes and the thought of upgrading?
