But for that matter, haven't it been established for long already that Win7 is basically Vista with the quirks removed and improved features. Vista was more like a transition, while actually still being a good OS.

For very broad values of good, I suppose... On reading some more of the thread. Wow. Really? Both vista and win7 are dogcrap slow, will not allow you to play media it decides it doesn't want you to play, complex where it was functionally simple, and ugly. Completely useless. Oh, and difficult to install. I have absolutely nothing good to say about Microsoft or its products. Oh, and expensive!

tl:dr Keep leisure time short and precious, to avoid boredom.
