    Read the promo - Never !

    If all else fails read the manual - Never !

    If I can't get productivity out of a OS or an application without reading
    the manual or within 20 mins then that OS or application is history.

    MS haven't you ever hear of "intuitive" interface.

    I have great fun pressing the keys and see what happens, ok for most
    computers, not so good during a public open day at your local Nuclear Power
    Plant.

    Multiple Monitors vs Multiple Desktops

    For each their own, multiple 3 monitor setups are becoming more popular for
    home users.

    Multiple monitors are used by,
    -AV producers and editors,
    -Financial currency and share traders,
    -Industrial processes even hobbyists,
    -Even some prototype games,
    -Home users webcamera surveillance of pool, nursary, etc.

    Mutiple Desktops should not be considered the poor mans multiple monitor
    setup, indeed multiple desktops whether transparent or not can be useful,
    for web camera surveillance, NLE use, watching TV or application progress,
    etc.

    Vista Aero Glass has the potential to develope into a powerful and useful
    application if MS wish to at sometime improve its capabilities.

    Don't forget software developers. It's almost impossible to develop software
    and Web sites with one monitor. Three is more like it for Web development.
    Maybe four.

    The Aero features are not limited to a Glass effect, Flip 3D is also a cool
    feature tied to it. If you have the resources, it's pretty cool. if not,
    don't use it. Ultimately it will not improve your efficiency very much and
    your resource utilization will drop if you turn it off. So far I like it. It
    is flaky but remember this is a beta... the final version should be much
    improved.

    Slow at times, but is cool and sophisticated, even though it is sort of a
    resource hog. Gives sense of depth, but if many windows on top of each
    other, window borders look chaotic b/c of the blurs - titles of window
    borders hence are barely readable.
