Everyone knows Vista is the OS that everyone loves to hate. When it was launched computers were too slow and crappy for it, but I like it better than Windows 7, and 8 on modern hardware. Here's why:
1. Windows Movie Maker and Windows Mail are integrated and they're better than the Live versions, available for Win 7.
2. Windows Vista lets me use a small bmp as a desktop wallpaper, while Win 7 blurs it.
3. Two extra games for Vista Ultimate (Win 7 Ultimate has no such extras).
4. I prefer Vista's default theme and wallpaper to the Win 7 ones.
5. Vista with SP1 and SP2 is just as fast on my PC as Windows 7.
The only drawbacks of Vista I can think of are:
1. No native DVD writer
2. Cannot switch between wallpapers automatically
3. Unlike Win XP and 7, I have to click "Ok" after safely removing hardware.
Apart from those Win 7 and Vista are pretty much very similar, so I don't see the need to upgrade. And I like Windows 8 for tablets and the Windows Phone 8 OS is nice, but I don't like it on a laptop or a PC.
I don't care about Jump lists, Aero Peek, Libraries and the bigger taskbar. And Aero Shake and Aero Snap are annoying imo. I also find the HomeGroup annoying and useless and I don't like its icon that always appears in Windows 7 Explorer.
I hope that when I buy my new laptop with Win 8 I'll be able to dowgrade to Vista. Am I the 0only one that's sticking with Vista?
