stop what you were doing, grab the mouse. Disrupt keyboard flow. I got used to it,

I have never gotten used to it. Keyboard as much as possible, mouse as little as possible is how I would prefer my computing.

I am not as much of a keyboard stickler, except when it comes to web forms.

It's very irritating when I can't select the option I want without first clicking on the control, or having to manually click the submit button.

It's impressive that you dedicated so much time to analyze the performance of different Windows versions. Itís no surprise that Vista is not a good operating system because it doesnít work on hardware older than 2017.  I tried it when it first came out and was seriously disappointed when I noticed it has missing drivers and a long list of apps that are currently incompatible with Windows Vista. For some reason, the newer operating systems are worse than the older ones. In my opinion, everything went downhill after Windows 8. I purchased a windows 10 reddit key last year but was disappointed with Windows 10 as well, although it is better than Vista.

xp64 is the greatest,  if it supported dx11/dx12 tp4 would still be using it.

Thanks.
Vista (64) ran fantastic on older hardware, it's just wanted ultra high end and few could afford those parts.

On the other hand, Vista 32 was simply flawed and most people were on that.
