Lifehacker is featuring a video by Windows user Chris Pirillo on his experience after 6 months using Vista. It’s quite in-depth (over 50 mins) and he reaches the conclusion that at the moment, it is just not worth the hassle.
Lifehacker then asked its readers about their experiences with Vista. The result is a mixed bag and we have to be careful as everyone likes a forum to bitch about stuff, but the response certainly backs up the old tech adage of ‘don’t buy v1 of anything’. Those who’ve had good Vista experiences are overwhelmingly people who either bought it pre-installed on a new machine or who did a fresh install. Upgrading from XP appears to be a recipe for disaster.
