Was early Vista the last time you used a MS OS? Windows 7 & 8 are blazingly fast and stable. Even Vista wasn't that bad towards the end of its life. As to the rest of their programs, what's so bad about them?

I would go with a Nokia Windows phone - just because their offline car navigation is great! And they have free maps for 100+ countries.

Crashing, viruses, it only cost me £25 to fully update my mac osx. As I said personal preference. I thought W7 was atrocious, we have to put up with that at work.
