We've got the entire website which helps millions of people around the world solving their problems with windows vista. We read 100's of forums in which we find people curse vista and are not happy with it. But the strange part is people still use it. So here'e a question for all of the Vista users:
Do you LOVE or HATE Windows Vista?
No explanation needed as we already know the pros and cons.
Simply say YES or NO?
My answer would be a YES !
What about you guys?:confused:

Yes - I love it. You asked whether or not people love or hate Vista, that's a double choice, so a simple Yes, by itself, could mean yes I hate it it or Yes I love it. (Likewise a simple No).

Vista x64 Ultimate works great on decent hardware. I think the problem is cheap, stupid users trying to put it on Windows 98 hardware.

Yes I love it, the only thing that bugs me is I still have to use XP at work, the boss is too stupid and set in his ways to change to Vista, but he has just installed it on his home computer, might be a good sign, still don't think he will change the work computers but.

I love it, i can use my pc to its full potential, whereas i couldnt with xp. Vista still has some downfalls that need to be sorted tho.

Im thinking about upgrading our other pc to vista, but not sure which version. Was leaning to 32 bit coz its used for some older games.....

I love XP. Couldn't leave it. But I did a dual install of Vista, just to try it, as you do. Found myself using XP less and less. Funny that. XP seems somehow older and less nippy.

Both! I love it once it gets going, but getting there is a PAIN. I had a desk crash that knocked out my hard disk. Data was safe (backups). But the first installation my audio had a stuttering problem, 2nd installation resulted in multiple Application Data Folders turned out one should not restore security, got tire of fighting that; currently on installation 3. It takes about a 1/2 day, to get all the service packs and updates installed. I started my installation at midnight and at 1230 the last of the updates are completed.

Installation and updates: Hate it.
Running: Love it.

love vistax64 at least the x86 version is sluggish and i found less compatability issues on x64 which cheers me up no end also since i put ultimate x64 on my system has not crashed once or encountered a problem so a big thumbs up from me and like someone said already you need newer hardware to run this it wasn't designed for old stuff but to bring people to the forefront of the modern era.

Totally and utterly agree with above post....

From start every piece of hardware and drivers that go with it have worked. Zero troubles.
One system restore done do ti but that was due to my stupidity nothing else
