Vista bashing - all the cool kids are doing it.
Back in the day, Ed Bott was one of the great Vista apologists. Here he is trying to tell everyone that nothing is "missing" from Vista (other than, oh, it's file system). It's a fun read for back in March of 2006.

And here we are two years later, as he chronicles the real world issues people have been having (especially with Sony Vaios):

I'm not trying to turn this into an anti-Windows rant, so I"ll get off the subject. But if you're going to spend so much time telling us how horrible i5/OS is, then you ought to be able to at least be objective about your own personal choice. At least I've never heard of people installing a new version of i5/OS and then yanking it to move back to a previous version. Microsoft is even making it easier for folks to do so.

Right. Not a single argument.
