well i can give u many reasons regarding this...here they are
1.)vista sucks ( home basic sucks big time)
2.)why the hell does vista need 512mb of my ram to do NOTHING when i only have 1gb ram on my poor old lappy
3.)do you think its fair to differentiate among diff version of vista ..i mean its hard enough bearing vista and its still harder bearing vista home basic
4.)takes hours to start up and shutdown.
5.)basically i hate vista ..... i used to find xp manageable but icant live with vista any more( other than few times i have to stick with it like while playing lan games like aoe , CS ) :P
