    I use Vista. Never had any problems whatsoever. Never failed, crashed or had hardware issues. 100% uptime.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    Me neither, but the changes to the UI are just a bit pants. Unneccesary tinkering with a UI that worked OK.

    I'm quite happy with Vista, I just don't like paying £37 a year for 1 care so that it runs properly.

    I binned Vista on this laptop as I found it troublesome as soon as I wanted to do something other than Office type applications.
