The most recent OS from Microsoft, usually blamed for any computer problem whether it is OS related or not. Especially when trying to run Windows Vista on the minimum requirements or less, or connecting to the internet without an active anti-virus and firewall.
Jon: "Windows Vista sucks."

Bob: "Why?"

Jon: "I bought this computer only a week ago for $200 bucks, its got 512 gb of ram and a Celeron processor and its running slow as a snail, and it won't run my DOS copy of Wolfenstein."

Bob: "You know you should have at least 1 gig of ram, preferably 2, and at least a pentium 4 wouldn't hurt."

Jon: "I only use it to surf the internet and check email, why would I need all that?"

Bob: (sighs) "Never mind. Hey you do have an anti-virus and a firewall, though, right?"

Jon: "Whats that?"

Bob: "Thats not good, but at least if you get a virus, User Account Control will prevent it from having access to sensitive system files."

Jon: "I turned that off because it kept asking me for permission and that was annoying."

Bob: (facepalm) "Forget we had this conversation. You're right. It must be Vista."

A totally wanky piece of software that's been crammed down people's throats by forcibly installing it on all new PCs.

Me : Will it arse! I'm putting Linux on it! Here, take my Vista DVD and COA and gimme my cash back!

Microsoft's newest Operating System, the successor to windows XP. Windows Vista takes all the worst features of Windows XP, and makes them worse, moves them around to new, hard to find locations, and adds a ton of new features. Some of these new features are:

*Explorer windows that regularly freeze up
*A proprietary web browser, Internet Explorer 7, that comes packaged with the system and cannot be uninstalled or deleted.
*400+ MB RAM usage right off the bat.
*Built-in DRM to restrict a users ability to do most anything.
*UAC (User Account Control), a wonderful feature that questions the intelligence of its users by asking if they're sure they want to do what they're trying to do, then double-checking that they didn't accidentally press "Yes" when they meant "No."
*Shadow-copy, and other similar hidden processes, that keep hidden backups of your data files to ensure that your privacy is always compromised.
*Little backwards-compatibility.
*New versions of old familiar tools that remove all those pesky progress displays and status indicators, so you have no idea whether the program is actually doing anything or not (because that's none of your business). For example, the new checkdisk and defrag.
*A complete new set of security holes for virusus, adware, trojans, etc to exploit.
*The new "aero" interface, which is incompatible with almost everything non-Microsoft.

Windows Vista is also known as Microsoft's latest attempt to create a product worse than windows ME.
Bob: "Fucking Windows Vista!"
Joe: "That's like the 10th time you've said that in the last hour!"
