Microsoft looks to 'Mojave' to revive Vista's image

"Microsoft last week traveled to San Francisco, rounding up Windows XP users who had negative impressions of Vista. The subjects were put on video, asked about their Vista impressions, and then shown a "new" operating system, code-named Mojave. More than 90 percent gave positive feedback on what they saw. Then they were told that "Mojave" was actually Windows Vista.

..of that perception, Microsoft belatedly acknowledges, stems from Apple's successful and unchallenged anti-Vista campaign. But, after stewing over the ads on many of his morning runs, Veghte decided that it was time to strike back, even without a new version of Windows to tout. Apple, he said, has "crossed a line" from fact into fiction." writes

Yeah I use Madriva myself, got it Dual Booting, but I use vista cause it has my music in it(iTunes darn it). I'm trying to use Amazon tho so I'll be able to switch eventually.

But yeah I'm disappointed that Vista will only last 3 years. I feel like Windows 7 should be a free upgrade not another $150 OS.

I think it's a perception problem that people have. Sure Vista is slower in performance than XP, but I like Vista over XP in many ways, if you leave out the annoying UAC popups, yadda yadda. Still, I'm satisfied with Vista, mainly because the performance hit isn't that big on my top of the line rig.

actually Vista is way faster than XP you just need good hardware. if you have old hardware it will be slower than XP on that hardware. but if you have new hardware it will be WAY faster than XP on that same hardware

you can also turn off UAC
