Truly vista has a successor in windows lineup ala windows 8.

Sad part for everyone purchasing any laptop is that if it ships with 8 your stuck on 8 since oems have promised no driver support and/or warranty void status.

If your a desktop person, your lucky, you can build your own and stick it out with 8.

Also numbers report. Windows 8 hasn't sold as much as windows 7 in the same period of time. So not statiscally a vista (at least not yet) but user experienc wise it's pig in pigs clothing.
It does suck big time. A good friend just got a Lenovo Ideapad Yoga. Cool little toy, but we're been trying to get drivers for everything for about a week now. Lenovo won't help out and the online community is still trying. Win8 blows.
