I use this, and still run the same… In my opinion Windows Vista is nothing but an unstable Operating System.
Vista is perfectly fine. Just need the right hardware.
So many people complain about vista, but it runs flawlessly for me. Seriously, I don’t think it’s fair to label it “unstable” when the only “flaw” really is that it needs decent hardware.
Agreed, the only time Vista gives trouble is when I knock my RAM loose or my old hard drive starts acting up. (I don’t have a case on my computer, hence the RAM being knocked, as well as other parts.)
