well, actually you can choose the language (most people only need one), and on top of that, you can download all the languages you want on windows update. Also, the list of drivers is close to 10x the amount of macs, because it is an open system. I installed 7 on a ten year old 533mhz cpu (AMD K6) with and upgraded to max 384mb of memory, and it runs about the same as xp (a nine year old system). you guys love to hate vista, but it was built from the ground up a couple years ago. they just tried to do the apple thing and load a ton of junk software that most people dont need. they figured that out and stripped the operating system down, and it runs smooth. no driver problems, and it deals with a lot more that macs 100 drivers. think in the thousands.
vista was hated because it was an upgrade that manufacturers didnt support. nobody made drivers for it. All of the drivers are there now for windows 7. if people would stop being idiots and drop a grand on a new laptop, which is less than they would do on a new macbook, no one would complain because they would actually have decent hardware to run the system.
