With XP being around for so long, it is easier to remember only the "good" about XP but for some of us older guys, we remember the long hours of banging our heads against a nice brick wall trying to get XP to work. When Vista came out, people said "what garabage!" "Sure it looks pretty but with it crashing every minute it's like having a gorgous girlfriend with bad breath from hell" So Microsoft started wringing it's hands, wondering what it was going to do with Vista. It could'nt just add on a service pack that made it "Brand New!!, the stigma of bad breath has a long memory, so they said "lets repackage it and call it Windows 7, add a differnet GUI, hell, make it look like OS X, add DX11 since DX10 has soooo many titles, and is soooo done, and VOLLIA! problem solved"
I just went over to Vista recently(after spending $200.00 when it first came out, trying it out, and quickly putting it back into it's box; shoving it waaay back into the deepest closet I could find)and I am liking it(now that it has SP 1). Microsoft wants me to fork over more money? for their incompetance? just as I was getting comfortable with Vista? I don't think so.
