Let’s face it; Vista is nowhere near to where it set out to be. All the hype and promises just went down the drain as soon as those pesky Vista problems started to surface. Users got frustrated and didn’t even bother troubleshooting the issues they faced. The easier alternative was just going back to Microsoft XP. And even Microsoft admitted that it was a big goof up from their side, and they released an improved Windows 7 to get over the nightmares Vista problems caused.
But where did the famous Microsoft Support team disappear to when those Vista problems started popping out? The truth is no one bothered to even get help. And also, Vista had in-built support in it!
It’s really sad that an innovative feature of Vista, such as an in-built Support feature, was completely overlooked by the other Vista problems. This feature had all the resources and tools to overcome common issues. Thankfully, this feature is properly implemented in Windows 7, so all is not lost.
Microsoft’s official support website is the place to be
