I always turned off the UAC, though that was a bit hidden, and if you wanted to buy one off the shelf, and you had a computer at home...probably the Home Premium would have been a good idea.

Bad first impressions because:

1. It was loaded onto computers that were too weak to run it well.
2. Third parties were not ready with drivers, causing a lot of BSOD.
3. It changed program permissions so that a noticeable number of programs written with XP's (awful) permissions system in mind did not run correctly (or at all in some cases).

It might now, but it didn't at launch. It was a mess at launch. On top of the compatibility issues, resource hogging and the UAC fiasco (which went far beyond just being annoying and actually messed up a lot of software), I also have a theory that its built-in partition manager was broken since I've had to repair the formatting on two different hard disks from two different Vista computers and that's just drawing from a pool of like 10 people I knew who ran Vista at home.

Anyway. I think most Vista advocates say that Vista started to become usable after Service Pack 1, but Windows 7 was already well on the way by then. That means that Vista was very much skippable. The best choice from a compatibility and usability standpoint, as well as a cost-efficiency standpoint, was for more end users to keep using XP and then skip straight to Windows 7 when they were ready to upgrade.

I've never even used Vista unless it was on someone's computer that needed fixing.

People who still hate vista are just bitter vista is fine. i more or less skipped it TBH i used it on other PCs a fair bit but just went from XP to 7. with 8 i dont hate it i just see Zero reason to upgrade it literally offers nothing else i would want. il probably just skip to 9 down the line and 7 has been pretty good with me.

People criticizing Vista but praising XP really ought to recall how "stable" and "efficient" XP was at its release
