What don't you like about it?

Believe me, I'll be the first person to dis it if it was crap.I use quite a lot of sophisticated programs and I have not run into any problems whatsoever. The only issue I had was some of the software I use either didn't work on Vista, or did not work on 64-bit. However, it was easy to get hold of that was made specifically for 64-bit. The software that came with my trackball mouse which has buttons that you can program does not work on Vista 64-bit. The Kensington start Manufacturing software for Vista because Vista has its ownmouse functions built-in. I rely heavily on being able to space use a drag function. That is built into Vista and you can program your mouse to do it. I actually now prefer my trackball that way it is, rather than the way it used to be using Kensington software.

Vista also has its own speech recognition built in. Haven't used it that much because I've got my own, however it works really well from the time I detest it.

I could go on about Vista and how good it is. Vista is quite different from XP and one has got to be a little bit patient and either spends time looking through the control panel on finding out what things do, or find a tutorial, there are loads out there that will give you a really good lesson in using Vista.

When I compare the way my programs run on my Vista 64-bit system to the way they ran on XP, it is literally the difference between a normal family saloon, and a Porsche, and that is absolutely no exaggeration.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

I'm still on 32 bit I think :P and the reason I dont like vista :P You can't play world of warcraft and other decent games as good as with xp :P + office looks bloody gay and is ( imo ) unpractical to use.
all in all, vista's looks are blergh :P and as I am a fashion victim, that bothers me alot :P

Vista is a very userfriendly version and it has some great features too (yeah initially confusing). But it consumes a lot of resources in your computer. If you don't have a powerful computer, vista is a nightmare. On the other hand Xp runs well even in a low end computer. So "whats the best ?" depends on your computers status.

If u have good computer go for vista. After u got used to Vista you will definitely fall in love with it.

I haven't used any voice recognition software in quite a few years, actually I haven't had a need for it. But back then you used to have to train the program which got better only after hours of trianing, is it better now?

I won't go into Bill Gates operating systems, I am also very computer savy. I always custom build my systems myself. But I will say that Windows wastes alot of unneccassary resources not used by the average user. This is great site to look at for releiving unused resources.
