Vista backlash goes Dutch

October 16, 2007

Vista busy cursor That backlash against Vista I predicted back in June is going from strength to strength, despite the fact that hardware is in general catching up and Microsoft’s performance and compatibility updates have helped a bit.

This time it’s the turn of the Dutch Consumers’ Association, Consumentenbond, who have recommended customers insist on XP with their new PCs in preference to Vista.

“The organization’s spat with Microsoft began when it conducted a survey on Vista’s performance. According to the survey results, the OS performed quite poorly, racking up 5,000 consumer complaints in less than five weeks. Commonly reported issues center on printer and hardware compatibility, system crashes, and slow peripherals.”

The full story, reported by ars technica, is here.
