After taking a look back at one of the highest praised operating system to date, Windows XP, I thought we may as well revisit Vista too, perhaps one of the most notorious operating systems.

Incompatibility issues, blue screens and freezes are just a few problems that come to mind, and it wasn’t just gamers that were frustrated with what seemed like a step backwards at the…


  1. I used Vista for like 2 or 3 years and I actually loved it. I went from a fairly low-end XP machine to a decent entry-level Vista prebuilt, so that could be why it felt so much better.
