Windows Vista: The best version of Windows yet

I've just come across a website for XP users which has an item titled as above as the main article on it's front page.
So what about Windows 7? Obviously the publishers of the website think they should still be recommending Vista as it's better than Windows 7.
To find out who the organisation promoting Vista is click here. I'm sure many of you will find it as amusing as I did!

7. Record and watch TV on your time [huh!]
Watch TV on your own schedule—not the TV networks' schedule. If your PC has a TV tuner, you can record, watch, and pause live television on your desktop or mobile PC using Windows Media Center.
With multiple TV tuners, you can even record one channel while watching another. When and where you watch your shows is now up to you.

I'm wondering how many tuners to buy. Grin

Re: Windows Vista: The best version of Windows yet

Funny thing is I managed to mainly skip Vista and my "everyday" system is W7 (x64) as of a few weeks ago.
But I keep asking myself - in what way is this better than my old XP system?
Well, it's quicker, but then it's a much newer PC and if I switch to XP (it's dual-boot) I get exactly the same facilities (as far as I need) anyway.
And it's different visually. More childlike, less "professional" I reckon.
Plus it's organised less logically and some things are just plain obscure or weird.
Dunno why I bothered really.  Undecided

Oh come on, everyone knows Windows RG is the best version that's ever been released.
