It's the worst thing Microsoft has ever done. Make everything harder to do, hide everything somewhere else, throw in a zillion idiot messages, a fucking disaster is what you get. It has been an utter failure in the business world, just about every client I have has stuck with XP Pro, those who went Vista truly, truly regretted it. The ones really stuck are the hapless consumers who got it jammed down their throat's with a new PC, something which has done wonders for Apple sales.
XP Pro is the most stable operating system they've ever had. A mild upgrade is all they have ever needed.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
