I recently wrote a hub about the reputation that Windows Vista has gained, but now with the release of Windows 8, I have to ask... which Windows do you think is the all-time best? and which is the all-time worst?
sort by best latest
I agree. When compared to XP, or even Windows 7, Vista pales. Thanks for your comment!
Thanks for your comment!
Hehe! I used Windows 3.1 and 3.11 back when I started college. I remember when Windows 95 was released, I refused to use the new, updated computers :-D Thanks for your comment!
To each his/her own, but I recommend you stick with Windows 7 for now. Thanks for the comment!
I like this list a lot, but I might be tempted to nudge Win 7 to #1 and XP to #2. Thanks for your comments!
There are some things that were lost in Win 7 like 2 key shut down (ctrl+UU)
along with some other shortcuts. Win 7 is much bigger and uses up more memory doing nothing.
LOL, I didn't even know that shortcut existed. I use the ALT+F4 a lot though. As for memory issues, I've never really felt it that way, but you can always disable stuff in your System Configuration. Vista, however, really loaded up a lot of crap.
Go to the performance tab in the task manager and do the same operation on both machines and you will see a big difference. Also look at the memory used just running.
Sure, there's obviously a difference in how much memory each OS consumes, just like there is with every new version of an OS. But I'm not sure what you mean by "doing nothing". I know that I rarely or never experience huge slowdowns or freezes with 7
Thanks for your comment! I also have a hub on Windows Vista reputation. Feel free to check it ;-)
I don't remember having too many issues with software or hardware installation. Maybe some problems here and there, but never something drastic. Anyway, thanks for the comment!
The laptop from which I'm writing right now also has Vista. I've never had major issues with it, but I know it's the "black sheep" of the Windows family to some :-D Other than that, I have Windows 7 at my desktop at home and I love it.
Is it BASIC or HOME PREMIUM? I've heard several people complain about basic. Maybe it's that version that everyone hates.
Mine is Vista Home Premium.
