Does Anyone Else Out There Like Vista?

  Input Overload 15:10 21 Dec 2009

I took delivery of a new DELL lappy two days ago with 7 on. I also have a month old desktop with Vista on.

To be honest I like Vista as much as 7 & are wondering if I want to spend a day reinstalling my Desktop PC to put 7 on, it runs great on this new desktop.

I Have XP on another oldish laptop with XP on & that's OK also.

Dare anyone else say 'I like Vista? or am I alone.?

I feel like King Canute holding the tide back if I even hint to people I feel Vista is a good OS.

and you don't plan to install or do anything with it - it is probably fine for you ;)

I've never had any problems with Vista and i have been using for about a year now. I do have all the various 'bells n whistles' turned off so that it looks more like Win 2000 than anything later. The only niggles are minor and scarcely any different to the ones I had with XP so I haven't really considered it even an upgrade to XP, just slightly different. The only real improvement was that I found that System Recovery actually works in Vista, or have I just been lucky?

Before win 7 I ran Vista- I loved it!

Not sure about win 7 yet.

And I thought I was alone in the universe! It's just that I am finicky about having my PC set-up just right & it takes quite a while to do this desktop. And it's used for so many things, I'm a bit fed up of installing PC's lately so Ill stick with Vista for a while.

Thanks all, & the best to you & yours!

You all know windows 3.1 is the best :-P
Have vista and xp not got round to getting 7 yet. I am quite happy with how my computers run at the moment. You can change your computer to look how you want it to anyway what ever o/s you have.

Nevr had any problems with Vista which is more than I can say with XP when that first came out.
W7 no thanks will wait for W10 or whatever they call it.

I don't normally buy a computer with an OS installed. I like a bare HHD to start with but I did buy a laptop with Vista installed. It is nowhere near as quick as XP but, other than that, there's nothing wrong with it.
