Re: Rolling the Dice

I got nailed while buying a laptop in the time period when MS had ceased XP sales and forced OEMs to use Vista. So I had no choice if I wanted recent hardware. In typical MS fashion they backtracked on that after Vista SP 0 turned out to be such a problem, but not until I had been stuck with it. It's evolved to be pretty stable and not bad overall, but it took 2 SPs to get there.

No it took good drivers. The problem with vista and drivers was that vista was a complete remake of windows, and they delayed it so many times that driver companies did not believe it was coming out when microsoft said.

I'll compromise and say good drivers *and* two SPs later...
