Vista. It made me go and buy a Mac. Also damn near destroyed the disk trying to get it out of the case for a work upgrade...don't ask what happened to the case :-|

Red rings that struck terror into thousands upon thousands of gamers are worse than any of the others. Vista is a close second, but SP1 coming should help the perception there, but personally I've had my share of Vista issues that are annoying. Unfortunately, all the blame can't be aimed at MSFT for 3rd party programs not working right. Those are the breaks when you have to support every freaking hardware configuration under the sun.

Vista might cause more damage overall in the long run, but the damage rendered by RROD is assuredly more acutely felt.

Finally caving in and installing Vista on a new hard drive recently, it's actually not that bad, but then it's had a year to mature since release. It's just not that significant or necessary of an upgrade either. Most of the problems are definitely 3rd party induced (or OEMs including the OS with computers that can barely run the damn thing), though there's the typical odd MS decision here and there. I think the bashing is way overrated compared to something completely useless like Windows ME, but it being Microsoft they've earned every bit of it I suppose. Anyways I like Linux and Macs too and I still don't see what's so singularly horrible about Vista. In a perfect world I'd be running something like Ubuntu full time, however.RROD is just an unmitigated colossal hardware QA failure by comparison.

You don't realize how much you enjoy your 360 until you don't have it for a month.
