The old Windows Vista love/hate thing

A friend over on his blog recently posted about his love, err, hate of windows Vista.

Now me, I quite like it actually, it looks funky, runs perfectly fine on my lappy and hasn’t crashed once since I installed it. It’s a welcome addition and upgrade to XP which has been the next best OS that MS have produced since Windows 3.11 and 95.

Now I know that you can get other OS’ (free ones as well) to provide the same features as Vista but that involves either, messing around – which I really can’t be bothered to do or Linux (still messing around IMHO) however it is not my type of OS for desktop use yet. I use it on a day to day basis at work as a server OS and it’s brilliant, but spend time trying to get some software working because it may have compatibilty issues is not my idea of computing.

For what I use it for – it rocks, I wouldn’t install anything else and it just works for me.

  1. Ah Neil, I know I may sound like I really hate Vista, but I was getting frustrated with just how slow it can be sometimes.

    Usability is good, it does so much and most of it is pretty intuitive. My only gripe is I seem to spend far too long looking at that spinning blue hoop, even though my processor and hard drive don’t appear to be doing anything!

  3. That’s really bizzare Giles, my lappy doesn’t struggle a single bit! I don’t really do anything intensive on it and it even handles TF2 perfectly fine – well at the lowest settings poss but it was never bought as a gaming rig.

    What’s the spec on your system?
