Log off and back on again, or reboot. Usually helps.

Vista is definately annoying. "OMG YOU'RE TRYING TO DO SOMETHING GIVE PERMISSION!" *gives permission* "OMG IT'S DOING SOMETHING ELSE GIVE PERMISSION!" *gives permission* "OMG SOMEONE INSTANT MESSAGED YOU GIVE PERMISSION!" *throws computer out window*

That's where the smart money is.

Let other people be the beta testers.

Why does everybody hate Vista so much? I've got it on my laptop and haven't had a problem yet. If anything, I kind of like that it asks my permission before I do things. Especially when I'm on some of those lurid websites available in the internet, god forbid I fuck my computer up because of some bad porn.

For the same reasons that you can find old message board threads with a bunch of people complaining about XP when it came out, people aren't used to it and since the previous version of windows is the most common OS, it is currently better supported by third party software and hardware vendors (although the gap is closing).

I been running vista for almost six months on my home machine without any issues other the IE7 being too secure for certain web sites (but that is a problem in XP & 2003 as well)

Additionally if you are one of those people that is really annoyed by UAC, it's very easy to turn it off. (I wouldn't recommend it because it only requests permission when you actually making a significant change and unless you install software constantly you will likely go weeks without seeing a single prompt after you finish the initial setup of your machine)

Because it's easy.

Because complaining is fun? And most people seem to like complaining, or at least, do it a lot, so it's a great way to start conversations.
