Sometimes one damning statistic can put it all into perspective. Through a survey of 3,000 computers, it was found that 35% of those systems built to run Vista had been downgraded (by computer vendors or users) to run XP. Keep in mind, this metric wouldn't include systems like mini-laptops that are able to load XP because of their frail, wussy hardware. So, uhhh, who's pumped for Windows 7? [Register Hardware]
OK, I will admit I have never used Vista, but, I hear nothing good about it from anyone I know who has used it, not just at Giz. I dont want to have to tweak anything, I just want something that works with all my programs gives me no hassle. I am afraid of Vista and though I really want a new PC (I use both PC and laptop), I will NOT get Vista. In marketing perception IS reality.
