That quote pyramid is out of control Yeah Vista was a combo of things. Users trying to use it on hardware that was "Vista certified" but had no business running it. The manufacturers really dropped the ball on drivers and Microsoft totally failed to respond on a marketing level too. Apple ran several marketing campaigns that were absolutely savage and genius. People still parrot how bad Vista is and that includes a lot of people who never actually used it.

Nvidia driver hell was pretty common back then, I can't find the chart GIF at the moment but someone at Microsoft said their internal reports showed them responsible for like 28% of all Vista blue screens.
