Vista lacks security practices that were perfected in the 60's. It's
current security model has unbelievably bloated applications attempting to
perform checks that ought to be done in hardware. Vista makes a 6ghz machine
fail to perform as well as 100mhz machine with a fiftieth of the memory.
Vista, to put it simply, is *painful* to use. How much patience is the average
user expected to have when operations that ought to take a tenth of a second
take a full minute? Just trying to do two things at once will lock up a
vista system for minutes at a time even if the second operation is something
as trivial as opening up the properties for a folder.
Vista makes window/ME look wonderful.
