Wow, another reason for me to hate Vista. I think this is a very deceptive move by Microsoft. My reasoning is the average consumer will think they have 4GB of usuable system memory...The person selling them the pc may or may not tell them the truth. Even though it may not matter much to the consumer, they should still know this. On the other hand I guess this can increase sales for big retailers like Best Buy!(Sarcasm).

I don't know if I would call it deceptive. If a system has 4 GB of ram, it's got 4 GB. It doesn't say that it's 4 GB or usable memory, just that it has 4 GB. I can't blame them for changing that, I'm sure they got a ton of phone calls over that.

I don't have a list of reasons to not like vista, it would be too long.
