The new fashion – Badmouthing Vista

This is starting to get ridiculous, everywhere I look somebody is saying how much
Vista has failed. Every RSS feed I look at (even if its’ about food) screams how

    technical reason here? Maybe they aren’t ready for it? Perhaps there is a learning curve
    in adopting the OS?

Long rant,sorry about that-from someone using a number of operating systems and applications
and thinking that neither is perfect and understanding that a perfect piece of software will never
