Meh if you like spyware, M$ spying on every thing you do, high hardware needs, and DRM for you can't copy you music and stuff then its for you!
All i want to know is if the performance and security is better.. they can stick their bloaty extra features up their ass for all i care.
They say its post to be better but they been saying that for since Windows was made. They are still using the old NT4 patched like no tommrow kernel. Vista is just XP with a new shell, added new things in it, and made it that you need a $2,000 computer to run it.
Exactly, I'm not gonna buy it, just because it looks better... I'd rather use my vista inspirat theme from crystalxp :p

Vista: "the most desirable feature of the park are the beautiful views" I find it ironic that this is one of the definitions for Vista on Dictionary.com. There's plenty to look at, but no substance. Still, we'll all have it in a few years time, tis inevitable.
Yes, that's what we can conclude after reading your 2000 words essay on Vista :p
It requires a hefty system and stops you from doing alot of stuff you should be free to do, such as rip CDs onto your computer. Well, either that or they will only rip the CD into an uncopyable format.
One small advantage in a pool of disadvantages over XP is that Vista can turn off all non-essential processes when you start playing a game. But Linux has been doing this for years, so it looks like most will stick with XP or move to a Vista-clone for Linux (none at the moment, but there will be).
/me calls it Gestopa.
They watch everything you do on your computer. You supposdly won't be able to copy music or Cd's on it, but some hackers will find a way. To get a resloution over 1024x768 you need to buy the "uber 1337 expsive" version for $600.
As for securty, its an MS product what do you expect?
OMG your joking microsoft are bringing a new OS out :o
