Because it has a tendency to outperform 7 on some hardware configuration. Vista 64bit and 32bit outperform 7 both architectures on my Latitude XT.
Especially in the realm of HDD I/O. That 3600rpm zif drive is hell to 7, not bad to Vista.

First time I've heard that Vista outperforms 7, and I'm not one to dislike the former (I think it was just unlucky sadly), interesting to hear though

It's just like saying that a PC with Windows 8 can outperform the same exact PC with Windows 10. This is actually the case in my Dell Inspiron 660. Anyways, I'm trying to install Windows Vista in a VM, but I'm running Windows 10 and I'm not sure which program supports Aero. I know Hyper-V does not.

I've loaded Vista on my netbook again (only difference is that I'm using ultimate instead of home premium), still have to activate it.

As promised in the "Where is Windows Vista still being used" thread, a expansion of that post!

In my hometown, all the schools are operated by the government. They have PCs with Windows pre-installed on them but it changed after we got Chromebooks. Now the teachers were the only ones to access Windows! Anyway, what versions and preferences were used time-to-time?

1) Windows XP Professional SP3 (2011 (first year in primary school)-2013)
Notes: IE and WMP updated to last XP versions, no wallpaper, Office 2003 Professional, old-fashioned sign-in turned on by default, Media Player Classic (original, for DVD playback cause WMP11 only supported Region 2 DVDs) and some nostalgic "(animal character)'s (topic) House" educational games on them. Works with proper .exes and games.

2) Windows Vista Enterprise(?) (same as prior)
Notes: No internet so nothing worked except games.*hehe* Everything set to defaults cause the IT were lazy. Meanwhile, it is still being used at the Starlight Express Room at the Canberra Hospital.

3) Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (2013-2018)
Notes: Nothing changed, except removal of installer .exes working, Office 2010 Professional Plus and other usable software preinstalled (including IMGBURN and the obvious Chrome). I recall the entire installing thing on our computers exciting me and mixing it up for Vista! :?

4) Windows 10 Enterprise Fall Creators Update (2018-now)
Notes: Slowly rolled over the entire school (at first only available to selected workers) before coming to teachers in October. They should pretty much update to every new update. :beta: They could've chosen Education... This was the same year they ordered Acer Chromebook Spin 11 for student which caused a big boom at my high school.

So that's mine. Free free to post your history!!

My school uses Windows 7, but some computers use Windows 8.1 or 10.

I know one of my friends, his computer uses Vista. But the computers in my school computer room uses either Win7 or Win10. They used to use WinXP, but they all skipped Vista and Win8/8.1.

I have never seen Vista used in public ever in my life. Reasons why it’s not seen in public being used as much may be because of the hate Vista gotten in it’s early life (after being released). I only used it once in a virtual machine just so I can see Vista’s version of aero.

I have seen Windows 7 still being used in a few grocery stores in my area and in a Sky Zone near my area.
As for XP, it’s been a while since I’ve seen one in use.

At a school's library in Vietnam (where I'm studying), they still use Vista. I can't give you the photo of it, because of the coronavirus
