Vista isn't horrible, lack of support of drivers and turning off UAC would have done wonders for it.

Actually, Vista is still horrible even after service packs. It has nothing to do with the UI, UAC, nor even drivers (which are in abundance now). The network stack was a big issue but that has been fixed with service packs. The one thing remaining is the bloat. You can run 7 on a netbook / nettop with 1 GB of RAM fairly smoothly... Vista, you can't. (Well, not without a ton of tweaking, turning off services and such). The point is, people want most of their resources dedicated to their applications, not their OS.

To an individual... that may not mean all that much, because they will most likely have a beefy enough machine to handle the hogging... for the enterprise... it means alot, because cheap business class computers need to be able to do the work without spending a ton of money on hardware. The extra RAM and CPU to do the same thing with 7, adds up when one is replacing several hundred machines a year. Moreso back when Vista came out than now, but you get the gist of it, I assume.
