I disagree. I'm using Vista right now, and it is working wonderfully. BETA2 was awful, but I'm not having any problems with the latest version.

When I was using Windows XP with IE6, I would get a trojan nearly every week. When I started using Firefox with XP, I would get a trojan about once a month. I've been using Vista and IE7 for several months now, and I haven't gotten a single trojan! One time, a trojan did sneak past IE7, but Windows Defender took care of it immediately.

I daresay I've never gotten a trojan at all. What sorts of sites are you visiting?

Vista is just as vulnerable to attack as XP is. Plus of course you get the inbuilt MS kill switch, if they think your using an illegal key at any time they can basically cripple your computer. This on its own I can't disagree with because its their right to do so. However the fact that they can do this basically means they can covertly spy on you. Who needs root kits? You get one built in now!

Thanks but no thanks, Vista is just a bad idea and all its hyped security doesn't amount to much but an annoyance.
