RE: [Swprograms] OT: Heavenly

Richard, the proper response is to turn the question around and ask if you
know of anyone who didn’t prefer Vista over XP after trying the former for
more than a few days. That’s not a glib reply; the so-called Mojave
experiment did raise the valid point that people who believe Vista is crap
have little or no experience with it. It is XP grown up, no lie. Yes, there
were driver issues when it first came out, but that’s been true for every
other version of Windows back to NT! And yes, it does require more computing
horsepower, but that’s always true for new releases of operating systems.

The biggest mistake Microsoft made with Vista was allowing Apple to frame
the discussion with their Switcher ads.
