    Vista was an easy install too.

    Install. Gets updates on it's own. Installs said updates on it's own. Finds drivers for CPU, installs drivers. The only drivers it didn't get was catalyst.

    Just optimize for performance and it's like using XP again.

    My main gripe is everything is moved around from where it was in XP.

    Assuming the hardware you have is compatible for Vista, yes. And even then, the Vista "compatible" hardware doesn't always play nice. It's fun trying to run Windows Debug Viewer to see why you're getting constant blue screens. Also trying to turn the fancy looking UI back to XP has been fun too. I can ALMOST get everything back. Aero is sure awesome too. My work laptop was pegged (both CPU's) at 100% constantly and memory is constantly 50% utilized (out of my 4 gigs). At least with Aero off, I'm back at under 10% utilization and ~40% memory utilization. Too bad I can't fix the multi monitor issue where it can't detect which one is the primary monitor even though I've told it every day which one to use. At least I know I'm not alone and many others suffer the same issues daily

    Yup....Vista's running great for me. This is my 3rd laptop and 6th different install of Vista haha.

    Apparently more information is coming out now and the users were only showed a video of this Mojave. They didn't even get to use it. Or install it like I was saying earlier. But that would explain it.

    I've only used Vista sparingley but never had any problems with it. That said I'm not planning on updating OS's on my rig anytime soon. XP is oustanding and I have no need to change. I do like the look of Vista so I used a Vista Inspirat pack to change the look of XP. The look of Vista with the functionality of XP. Works for me.

    Vista SP1 is actually pretty good and I hope everyone knows you can turn off UAC to stop all those checks about doing anything like installing, changing, deleting anything.

    If you spend about an hour setting it up correctly it will actually perform better than XP. Out of the box it sucks.

    But only porn that's DRM approved by Microsoft and its preferred partners.

    And here is the heart of the problem. Ppl opt for flashy and sparkly view instead of functionality.
