Agree, I'm still running Vista on a dual boot machine along with Win10. Vista was just ahead of its time, while Win10, with its putting things where you can't find them and all that telemetry (solved with ShutUp10), was a step backwards.Windows 7 is based on the same kernal as Vista - it is effecitively Vista service pack 3. Vista was fine after service pack 2 - main issue was the inadequate minimum hardware specifications MS suggested originally. If they had been honest and went with 2GB memory minimum and a dual core cpu then people's first impressions would not have been so bad. Obviously though MS would have suffered as the OEM channels would want the latest OS even with hardware it was not suitable for.
