I don't have vista on any of my machines but I've fixed plenty of vista computers and I HATE how it updates.

It has to restart way more than any previous version of windows and takes way longer to install updates than xp.

How they went from it installing the updates then rebooting, to installing the updates then rebooting and installing the rest of the updates and then REBOOTING AGAIN never ceases to amaze me.

Also why doesn't it install service pack 2 by default. About 2 weeks ago I nuked a vista computer because it was so screwed, then I put on a clean install of vista and when I went to updates it didn't even advise SP1. Whats the point. I had to download SP1 and then SP2 as well.

I've already ordered a copy of 7, but if it sucks I'm done with window.
