As someone who actually had the pleasure of using this one hell of an OS, it's really not that bad as people make it seem to be. Not the best for sure, but not the worst either.

Every OS from Microsoft was good for their time. And yes, for Windows Vista haters, I consider that vista was good, probably not perfect, because nothing in world is perfect, but need perfection.

I remember when Win 7 came. I was like: This is what Vista was meant to be. I never used Vista on a daily basis though. I used XP and 2000 Pro until the launch bugs of Win 7 was fixed before switching to 7. I really liked the look of Vista though, and that instant search was like a gift from heaven!

One of my laptops is still running Vista, and runs perfectly. My NEW Windows 10 one boots up slower. I ended up running Chrome through the Vista laptop because it is unsupported, and I can't do some things in vista ( like IN-vid).... I really do not like 10 at all. If I find a Win 7 disc with a license that isn't looney expensive I will update the Vista unit, but so far so good. Watching and responding to this on my iPad.....Don't judge me.

@5:46 Everyone who knows what they're doing, don't even care for the UAC at all. That's pretty much the first thing I deactivate when installing a fresh windows. It's pretty much the "Noob filter" of Windows. If you're raging because of it, then you're one of the persons who needs it. If you're experienced enough to NOT need something like that, than you'll find the setting.

I actually liked Vista to some extent... Back then I build myself a highend gaming PC (AMD Phenom 9950 4x 2.6GHZ, 8GB DDR2 RAM 1066MHz and a nVidia GeForce GTX 280) and therefore I had no problem with running Vista. The major problem was for the old PCs and the "Office-PCs" of that time. Every PC with 2 GB of RAM (or less) had a hard time with Vista because of how demanding it was. But if you have a good enough machine Vista is almost as good as 7. In my opinion it's far better than Win10, but so is every Windows except for Win8/8.1. I really REALLY hate Win10. It's a spyware with OS-features. And of course it doesn't provide as much freedom as older versions. It's my PC so why shouldn't I be able to decide EVERYTHING? And why should MY OWN PC send data to MS when I don't want to? Other than that, I also can't stand the design, but that's more of a subjective term.

I was probably one of the only people who actually had no issues with Vista growing up. Even my gaming friends at the time were snotty about me having vista, mind you, I was like 11... Maybe it was because I was just a kid and only used my computer for homework and MMORPGs haha

30 years old, and the worst computer experience I have had was windows vista. Was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo terrible that I can't explain easily. I had to change to windows xp FOUR TIMES, the four times in to computers that I tried to use vista (different builds). It was unstable, it was buggy, it was fucking terrible man. Windows 7 didn't brought the blue screen of death EVERY TIME I TRIED TO USE IT, differently from Vista. In fact, it didn't brought it to me ever. Was vista that bad? No. It was worse. You can't judge the system after just try it. You must have it. You must use it daily. It will fuck you up in a few months. That's why people today seems to think better of it. Because they don't use or maybe they use very fixed versions. I tried to use Vista, I really loved its design and functionality. And It fucked me every time. It was only a matter of time, like a clock bomb.

Anyone with actual IT knowledge and not knowledge gained from videos and tips (meaning samples of knowledge), can customize an OS (and that PCs BIOS which is essential to customize) and make it work stable, nice and with minor issues, Vista included yes. Let's not forget that no matter the OS, they're all made by human hands, so none of them is perfect, they all have pros and cons and none is impervious to attacks and issues. Btw, idk if it was intended, but my eye caught that Win xp pro SP3 reference in this video, while there was never Sp3 for pro edition (as far as i'm aware).

I had Vista at launch with a Q6600 and an 8800 Ultra. Nvidia was the bane of my existence. Their drivers were absolutely appalling, and crashed even on the desktop every few minutes. Different cards didn't matter, Vista simply could not game on certain hardware, but it was due to third parties releasing faulty or outright bad drivers rather than the OS itself. I ran Vista alongside 7 till 2014 in my home server. It was a fine OS for the average consumer. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if Nvidia crashes accounted for far, far more than what was represented in the chart - for god's sake, around the same time, Apple was prepping to outright boycott the company, and let's not forget what Nvidia did to Sony with the PS3. Nvidia was also extremely common in desktop GPUs at the time, which would explain why so many people experienced senseless instability. Of course, Nvidia's hardware from the period had absolutely abysmal reliability records, so that could have contributed as well. IMO Vista was just "beta 7", whereas W8 was the true antichrist. Now running W10 for DX12 and OSX for creative work (applications not hardware). Vista was better than 10 by a long way.

I remember in 7th grade a friend of mine was bragging about a PC he and his dad were going to put together that summer. I dont remember specs as its been 12+ years but one of the things I'll always remember is him talking about it coming with Vista. I had no idea what Vista was at the time and it didnt seem all that important to me that it had a different OS. After my family moved to Florida that same summer and while we were initially staying with my Aunt and Uncle I had the extreme displeasure of getting familiar with Windows Vista on their computer and to this day I think back on how excited he was to use that buggy, unstable mess and giggle

I actually loved Vista, to me it was the modern age of Operating Systems, 7 was a good refinement. 10 After disabling all the crappy parts is a nice upgrade from 7. PS: In consider WIN 7 and WIN 10 to be a part of the Vista lineage, with 8.1 being more mobile centric but still part of the overall family although I completely skipped 8/8.1.

Win Vista = Steaming Pile of $hit. I transitioned from Win XP to Win Vista, no real choice as that was the only Windows system being offered at the time. I endured many blue screens of death over the years that I was using Win Vista on my desk top and laptop. I was quite happy to upgrade to Windows 7 when the opportunity came and with that change over the blue screen of death is but a bad memory. One thing I really miss from the earlier versions of Windows is the old Card File program that was not featured in the later releases of Windows. I really miss that feature as it was something that was very handy and simple to use and maintain. No bells and whistles just a simple little program for storing information that did not need anything elaborate to do so.

I still own Windows Vista 64bit somewhere. It was an ok os. But on those machines sold by top retailers with 32bit, really did suck. It was slow, especially after you have installed the programs you wanted to run on it. I have dealt with it on a friends pc that kept having problems. Wipe the drive and reinstalled Windows Vista, the same problems arose again after some time. I was happy when Windows 7 came out. I got tired of dealing with all the UI pop-ups. I bought Windows 7 Pro 64bit, and just fell in love day one. And I am still currently using it on the 3rd machine I have built for myself. This one is a gaming rig. I've been kind of hesitant going to Windows 10, but I know I will have to get it soon.
