Microsoft has done it all in the past two decades in terms of operating systems. You had us entertained, certainly with versions that have had as many hits as errors, but with the constant aim of trying to bring computing to all users.
There are obviously versions that have undergone our computers than others with more fortune in the family of Windows operating systems. Microsoft yesterday said goodbye to Windows Vista, and now many come back to wonder if Windows Vista was the worst operating system in Microsoft’s history.
Microsoft gives us a lime and sand
The history of the various Windows operating systems over the years tells us that for each good version there is a bad then. Windows 98 (well) happened Windows Me (mal), after which it came Windows XP (well), Windows Vista (mal), Windows 7 (well), Windows 8 (mal) and, finally, Windows 10 (good).
Although there are nuances, the truth is that this is the general impression that have left the various versions of Windows above, but as often happens between all that list updates There are some that have been especially criticized.
Windows Vista is in fact considered by many as the worst operating system released to the market by Microsoft, and a decade after its release There are some arguments that support this claim.
Windows Vista made many mistakes…
One of the main problems of Windows Vista is that Microsoft simply He sold us the gold and the moro with this priori revolutionary development. The Redmond company began working on it with that mammoth project called Longhorn in May 2001 that eventually never saw the light.
Among the options of the project highlighted the hypothetical introduction of the promising WinFS file system, but Microsoft teams wanted to encompass too much with this and other features that seemed to have meaning in themselves but which never became “team play”. There was no overall view, and Microsoft officials had to abandon those ideas to set a target that would allow them to offer once and for all a successor to Windows XP that threatened to be too irreplaceable (which ended up being for many).
When he finally launched on January 30, 2007, Windows Vista received criticism from all kinds. Many of them were addressed to their hardware requirements, which were that the new Windows Aero interface do response times to stipulate the user experience in modest equipment. Aero asked too much for what he did.
The price of the editions of Windows Vista (Ultimate Edition cost 399 dollars) and the inclusion of DRM systems were not to the liking of the users, but if there was a generalized critique It was that starred in the famous UAC (User Account Control), a feature allowing you to control the permissions of applications and tools according to the type of user, but which was implemented in a horrendous way: the UAC dialog boxes appeared everywhere, again making that user experience out injured.
… but he also had many successes
Negative criticism of Windows Vista left site for some positive reviews, and among them were that were made with respect to the introduction of DirectX 10, Some APIs allowing to improve both in performance such as the quality of the games.
What many people don’t remember is that Windows XP also received much criticism During its introduction, but eventually became one of the operating systems more “Dear” (if one can say that an operating system) and respected Microsoft for the achievements that had been made with the successive Service Pack.
Something very similar happened with Windows Vista: many of the defects corrected the SP1 for this operating system that had befallen this operating system, although they returned to cause problems of compatibility between a few users, many others – and myself – we have very significant improvements in practical aspects (such as the insufferable copying files) and also in other inmates who turned to Windows Vista in a much more decent development.
As I said then on my other blog, from my point of view Windows Vista was cool. In fact criticisms were significantly reduced and the thing improved even more with Windows Vista SP2, in which the previous version with new patches and some curious but almost anecdotal features (support Blu-ray recording, for example) are mostly refined.
Then, of course, eventually reaching the expected and mostly desired Windows 7, a version that even today it is acclaimed as the best in the history of Microsoft and who managed to learn from the mistakes of their predecessors to raise a much better bet. For some like the undersigned, Windows 7 was little more than a “corrected” version of Windows Vista. Something like a Windows Vista SP3. Without failures and errors (initial) of Windows Vista, Windows 7 never would have been able to reach where it has come.
Surely there are opinions and arguments of all kinds, but while Windows Vista was disappointing and problematic in the beginning, he managed to correct the step, and that is since then meritorious. Was it the worst operating system in Microsoft’s history? I doubt it, and if there is any development that can take this “award”, that would probably be Windows Me.
