So far, everybody has said that they hate Vista, but nobody has actually detailed exactly why this is so.

I sort of remember people saying the same thing about XP when it came out, everybody has got used to 98 and didn't really want change. Some of the programs I use rely on a powerful computer and good operating system, I've had absolutely no problems running them on my Vista 64-bit system.

I really can't find anything to criticise about Vista. It goes without saying that it is quite different from XP so one needs to take a little bit of time to get used to it.

I feel really at home with it now and I certainly am in no hurry to move onto anything else just at the moment.

Windows im sorry is user friendly but uses up way to much resources thats why we needmore ram and all these upgrades just to run the OS I like OSX or linux myself i have a BA in IT and it those two OS's by far blow windows out of the water. Ubuntu is a user frinedly Linux. Linux is great No Viruses spyware its nice not to worry about that stuff..

I don't think there's any one operating system that you can class as "the best" because each one has its own pros and cons. I haven't got a Mac myself so am not in a position to comment on the operating system, however I have various very expensive programs that are not compatible with the OSX operating system so purchasing a Mac is totally out of the question anyway.

I have just purchased two computers in the last three months, one has four gigs of RAM, the other six, say most computers come with more than enough RAM to run any program you want. Personally, I don't buy off-the-shelf computers, I prefer to have them custom-made so I have got what I want, rather than a load of crap that I will never use.

I think it will be interesting to see how people get on with Windows 7, I noticed that Staples are already selling PCs with it installed.

It may be possible to run a Macintosh operating system on a PC, but it's neither straightforward or legal, correct me if I'm wrong?

yes, i believe Josh is right, just buy a licensed software and you can run it in
another PC provided that PC has the right parameter for its operation. but a licensed
one is not that cheap in my place.... it can cost me for a one year supply of
staple rice.

Okay, I stand corrected. Maybe I will invest in Windows 7 at some stage and run it on one of my computers just to see it how it compares to Vista. But since I don't really do much more than website maintenance and construction, and some basic graphics stuff, I can't really see how anything is going to dramatically improve for me.
