I think that the vista hater's points are not that there's something wrong with the OS, it's just that it seems that for some reason or the other DX10 isn't doing it's job of rendering things more effeciently. That's one problem.
Second problem is that hardware companies can't seem to figure out how to make decent drivers.
So it's not totally MS's fault. It's just that others are making what is actually a decent product look worse than it actually is.
I've got vista on my laptop and I actually like it. It looks great and after figuring out where they put all the stuff used to actually do real admin tasks on the machine, it wasn't too bad.
