To the average user was Vista really that different to Windows 7?

Post by bearbles2 »

The press likes to hype the fact that Vista was a disaster while Windows 7 was the second coming. From an average end user perspective, I noticed very little difference. I'm wondering if windows 8 will be the same, touted as a failure, then Windows 9 will come along with a few tweaks and everyone will think it is the best thing since sliced bread.

Vista isn't that different from 7, besides the fact it's unstable without Service Packs. I think that Windows 8 was the same failure, because they removed Start Menu, the feature die-hard Windows users were used to. I used Windows 8.1 for one year but I've upgraded to Windows 10 and I'm happy with that.

Really? The content of the OP's post is exactly the same as https://www.reddit.com/r/windows/commen ... ally_that/. That's not the way to contribute here.
