    I got a WinVista laptop from my grandma last year. It was shit and I found out it had 512MB RAM so that coulda been why. My friend gave me RAM with 2GB so I put it in but nothing really changed.
    If I wanna watch YT on that thing, 240p is the highest it'll go without the video lagging. And newly uploaded videos don't work for at least half an hour or so.
    It also doesn't know what an mp4 is
    God, I hate the thing.

    Vista was good so was Me. Vista as well as Me downfall was poor Hardware drivers. I stooped using 7 and newer back on Dec 1st 2018 went back to Vista and XP.

    I was fixing up some old PC s, for some reason, the checking for updates didn't seem to work, like stays on checking for updates forever. However the checking for updates for Windows XP and Windows 7 seem to work just fine.

    The only problem I had with Vista was that after a good while everything started getting very sluggish, Windows 10 has thus far for me never really been affected by that issue.

    i am back now at Windows 7 because windows 10 is crap as hell. thanks to a Update my whole OS was corrupted i had to reinstall. couldn't activate at all.. with my original copy, bought new key still didn't activate. back at win 7 everything works so much better. and for Windows vista didn't had that problems iether... maybe because i had a gamingish pc Pentium 4 HT 4 GB Ram 9800 GTX it ran well still downgraded to XP because it was faster better and smoother. but vista wasn't that bad if you had a descent pc for it.

    I got my first laptop in highschool. It had vista and i LOVED it. I loved the wigets and even mor so loved MEDIA CENTER! It was so intuitive and easy to finde my music of witch i had 30,000 songs. I dobremember it kept duplicating my songs and turning my songs into 45min songs were it would just keep repeating the song for 45 minutes. That was anoying.

    windows vista wasn't bad operating system, just it was very slow on most hardware when it released. but after 1-2 years, on more modern hardware it was a really good operating system. i used it through a very long time, and i skipped windows 7. i wasn't any problem with vista, never. it's interest thing, 'cause i always used that operating systems what everybody hates, and i wasn't problem with them. I really liked windows me, and vista, and i use windows 8 with classic start menu now, and i like it. it's really stable and fast.

    Stuck with XP until it was pried from my cold, dead, fingers. Now I'm using 7.

    Also, how is that GUI “outdated”?
    I admit I switched to Mac OSX and iOS from Windows/Blackberry back in 2014 and haven’t used it since my extremely stable XP Pro Installation, but when I see Win7/Win10, it looks the same as Vista, the same as XP, etc.
    I mean, what did they do... really? Change the font? Add a new color to the status bar? Make a new icon? I remember using a program that was essentially a frontend or “skin” for Windows called “WindowBlinds” and making things that looked more modern than Windows 10 today...

    Vista and 10 have a lot in common at least from the people who complain about it. It had a new interface they are not familiar with so they hate it. They are running it on hardware that is going to give them a bad experience. One of the worst things Microsoft did with 10 was the free upgrade causing it to be installed on machines that could barely run 7 and in some cases were originally upgrades from XP. In both cases machines sold off the shelf were barely able to run the OS. Microsoft at least learned from their mistakes when it comes to driver support in 10. As for windows 8 yes may it die like ME did.

    Sigh... I see people arguing about whether or not Windows 10 is the fastest OS. Windows 7 isn't faster than Windows 10 and the other arround. It depends on your hardware and most importantly, if you use a SSD or HDD harddrive. I see on forums people claim Windows 10 is faster in games which is also an inaccurate statement because, again, it depends on your hardware. If you want a fast pc, just build in a SSD and read a tutorial how to clone your data of your boot device and transfer the data to the SSD.
