Bloat, Hardware incompatibility, Software incompatibility, etc.
It is difficult for me to understand how a company that screwed-up so badly with Windows ME could turn around and make the same type of mistake with Vista. There are plenty of reasons why Vista is disliked - I've listed a few of the many in the title but my biggest concern is that a company the size of MS would make the same stupid mistake with Vista they did with Windows ME. That is, rush it to market before it is really ready and let the user community pay the debugging price. Realease it too soon and not give the various OEM's the code in time to have drivers ready for the production release. I replaced more copies of Windows ME with a re-install of Windows 98 than I care to remember and now it's like an instant replay replacing Vista with XP. One more time MS forces the customer to take it in the ear. No wonder I'm installing Linux on as many PC's as I am (by customer request). I am beginning to wonder if MS is hiring the bottom 3% of every graduating class!
