iOS4 is really Apples Vista

    Anyone else kinda hate iOS4?

    I "upgraded" to it on my 3GS and it just feels sluggish occasionally, for example in settings menu, scrolling up and down has slight sluggishness, which was never there before - despite the fact the menu is exactly the same.

    Using System Activity Monitor shows random CPU usage, which will sort itself out after reboots.

    Anyone hoping Apple allows official downgrades?

    Hopefully iOS5 is like Windows 7 ;D

    Kevin Turner was actually referring to the iPhone 4 (the actual phone) to Microsoft's Vista. Not iOS4 to Microsoft's Vista. Either way, I disagree with your post, I have a 3GS running iOS4 and it works perfectly fine.

    I guess this one is all up to personal opinion.

    Oh, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Apple allow users to downgrade their software, especially for those 3G users out there.

    Edit: And as far as it being "sluggish" it's the hardware in the 3GS, from what I've heard.

    Er, yeah I know that, I'm saying iOS4 is a bigger problem than iPhone 4

    iPhone 4 is not Apple's Vista.
    iOS4 is not Apple's Vista.

    The three iPhone 4's in my house work great, no issues.

    The two iPhone 3GS' in my house work great with iOS4.

    Ok was just making sure (not trolling!), thought you were simply agreeing with Turner, but were just misunderstood about he said- guess not though :eek:

    Apple's not going to allow for official downgrades, that's highly unlikely.

    As for performance, did you restore from a backup or do a clean install?

    After Vista came 7, and Windows 7 is the best OS I've used to date. It's stable, secure, and makes my job as an IT admin easier than it's ever been. I'd expect great things for the iPhone 5 / iOS 5.

    Vista was complete crap. Considering the only problem I have is a slight annoyance with the prox sensor. The rest of the phone and software is great. I'd never go back to a 3.x or 3GS

    I used Vista and had no problems with it. It was a great OS according to my usage.

    There, I hope you all learned a lesson about anecdotal evidence.

    If you think Win 7 made your life easier ... try managing an all OSX network.

    You'll be able to catch up on a lot of that sleep you lost on Win Vista! :D

    iOS 4 works perfectly. iPhone 4 only has this one problem that only occurs to a small number of people. Vista was like a disease that affected majority of all PC owners. People paid to downgrade from Vista but no one has traded an iPhone 4 for a 3GS.
