VistaSucks.WordPress.Com is run out of Vancouver, BC Canada by Jay. A Windows user of 15 years and former Mac hater/Vista fanboy. Jay is in the process of switching has now completely switched to Macs but is currently still using Windows XP both at home and at work. although he still works with Windows on a daily basis as his day job is fixing computers.
Jay’s recent hatred of Microsoft stems from being locked out of his expensive high-end, custom built, PC by Vista. (His legal copy of Vista Ultimate 64bit Edition was illegitimized when he moved around some SATA cables), and the loss of his beloved XBox 360 to the infamous “3 Blinking Red Lights of Doom”
Before the “hatred phase” was the “loathing phase” which has lasted since Windows 95 and grown steadily with every passing day. Jay has owned (/been owned by) the following versions of Windows: 3.1, 95, 98, ME, XP Home, XP Pro, XP Media Center Ed., Vista Ultimate 64bit Ed.
Jay’s love for his iPod, and iTunes definately had a motivating factor in his desire to switch to Mac but ultimately it was Microsoft’s lack of product quality & stability, and their insultingly high prices that pushed him over to the other side. Apple’s recent “I’m a Mac/I’m a PC” ad campaign was also influential on his decision.

for any product or service that
financially benefits Microsoft in
any way, again”
