An option that opinions are for those that have used it for more than a month and eitehr liked it or not. Most people attack it without ever trying it or try it for week and find it is a bit different and consider it bad.

Vista is the best version (althought I have not checked out Windows server 2008 yet) Microsoft has released. With the proper hardware and drivers Vista 64 is more stable, fast and and complete than any prior version (although I do not remember the stablity of Windows 3.11, but we will just leave that out Smile | :) ). Additionally, it may be more secure.

Most of the moaning and complaining I have heard is usally due to running it on old hardware with little RAM or is using a bad driver, which is not Microsoft's responsiblity and they should not have the blame.
