why i'm tempted to delete vista

1) I must disable SATA AHCI mode in the BIOS because Vista Home Premium
can't handle it. Consequently the hard drives are not operating at full
speed. If I don't do this, Vista crashes around 2 seconds after it
first begins booting up.

2) I've got no software that makes using Vista worth the hassle. I have
two games, Tomb Raider, and Crysis, but I can't be bothered to play
them because it feels so unproductive and a waste of time learning how

3) Somewhere along the line while Windows was downloading and installing
updates, it broke something. While I was fumbling around in Tomb Raider,
Windows suddenly decided it had better things to do and began
configuring updates. It got halfway along configuring update 2 of 3 and
then decided it wouldn't bother after all... it rebooted the computer

4) The firewall and anti virus software crashed and I can't be bothered
to keep updating them either. They suck. So does the trial version of
the Nero or something media player which does nothing but suck.

5) Because I don't ever use Vista. It would free up some disk space if I
were to delete it.

6) It's good to do a bit of cleaning and dump things which are unused.

7) It's been at least 3 months since I used Vista. And I only used it
then because someone sent me a Word document as an attachment. It seemed
that OpenOffice.org could not read the contents. Turned out I was sent
an empty document.


1) I might need it for some irritating reason, presently unknown to me,
in the future.
