I have a question: Just how many gazillions of bucks does Microsoft and Bill Gates need?

I'm writing this on a XP machine, but made the mistake of buying a laptop with Vista. I had to destroy the hard drive and throw it out (it wouldn't accept an install of XP after even formatting the hard drive). I now have a laptop with Windows 7. While it's an improvement over Vista, it's still not as user friendly as XP. Now, Windows 8? Aaargh! Wish I had switched to Apple years ago.

Why? What was the problem(s) with Vista?
I've had Vista on a laptop and a desktop for years now - no problems.
