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."
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."
