A hardcore Windows fan reviewed and ultimately gave the thumbs down to Vista, citing lack of functionality as the main cause. That seems to be the popular sentiment right now. Vista is flashier, and it has some neat features, but it just doesn't work very well.

Microsoft, whose Windows OS operates 93% of PCs worldwide, is of course not worried. Microsoft expects that Vista will be installed on the 'vast majority' of PCs worldwide in about five years. It'll probably take 5 years to stop sucking, though.

I have stopped counting all the little problems I have seen since installing Vista. I do remember the last one as it upset my 11 year old. That being the word from tech support that her Disney ToonTown Online Service was Not Vista Compatible.

From what i have seen so far there still isnít a good reason to upgrade to vista.  Looks like the maximum pc guys werenít far off.

I have to agree with alexjsolis. I upgraded and I'm no happy.
 
Vista makes for more work than XP. You have to approve everything. Open an excel spreadsheet with a macro and you get stopped. Photos all receive warnings even after approving time and time again that the content is safe.
 
Most of the problems stem from Microsoft trying to be more secure. Right now the medicine is worse than the disease.
