    There's certainly more than one time I've felt like smacking one upside
    the head...

  3. Have you checked out some distributions of Linux using Beryl and Compiz? If
    that type of eye candy was real candy, a lot dentist would be billionaires.
    Vista based on my experiences with the OS since last year is that everything
    is done judiciously and conservatively. Yes, its eye candy done a
    professional way, not over whelming or trying to out do. Compiz and Beryl
    for focus on outdoing Vista, which should be the aim. AERO Glass is about
    focusing on the content of an applications main window, removing the
    distraction of title bar, adding dynamic focus and attention through
    transitions such as minimize, maximize, Flip 3D and numerous other
    functional friendliness in the OS.

    So you like it, many I know think it garish and ugly and contributing an
    overall negative to functionality since it makes many things much harder
    to read.

    A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely

    And many find reading in general difficult, as 25% of Americans failed to
    even read a single book in a years time.
    Please, when using "generalizations", consider the mixture in the pot.
    It is quite distasteful.

    What I'm saying is, ms is putting too much effort on the user interface, so
    much that the underlying fundamental functionality is not properly furnished
    by the time of launching. Personally, I want my computing experience to be
    more fun and entertaining, but please ... , functionality is always number
    one.

    Smackbook was initially created on may 2007 by some apple geeks, two months
    later ibm posted the similar stuff for their linux system. There is also a
    version for symbian os. From windows? Not a word yet. Look at these OSes,
    they are minority in this world, yet they do a superb job, they can cover
    every aspect of the hardware where they reside. I believe this is a very
    good example of how deep an OS should cover and support the underlying
    hardware. One of the fundamental function of any OS

    I'm not a programmer. I don't know how easy or difficult to write something
    like that -- I'm just a caveat user. After installing vista starter 3 weeks
    ago, I run into various problems. Most of them are very fundemental. So
    fundamental that from my point of view shouldn't take place with such a
    mature OS like windows. An example is: glitches around sleep or hibernation,
    come on guys, we already do sleep and hibernate and resuming since 1997,
    that was ten years ago. Why can't ms do it right?

    What about backward compatibility? I'm having problem with tungsten t3 --
    used to be working well with win2k and xp, palm only posted a new driver
    that 'not so compatible' with vista. I don't understand this usb connection
    stuff, it's already a standard everywhere, why would ms messing up with it
    again.

  8. I agree. So-called eye candy has a place, everyone appreciates a
    better looking slicker desktop and tools. Vista is prettier than XP.
    Whoopee! However, as usual the fanboy crowd miss the point. It seems
    Microsoft invested much more time fiddling with appearances and
    skimmed over functionality improvements.

    For example I find it inexcusable that they let Vista ship knowing
    copy/move/delete performance has actually downgraded (for some) from
    XP causing untold numbers of people to wonder why it takes forever to
    copy a file from one location to another. In my opinion, that's
    reckless.

    Another example is UAC. Anyone with any computer smarts at all knows
    what it provides it is mostly bullshit. It's little more than
    unnecessary and resented hand holding. While in concept a welcome
    change since XP sucked in providing security, again Vista got out the
    door with this feature forced on users and poorly implemented. So
    again, a good idea, but obviously clumsy and unfinished.

    I find it laughable that Microsoft took five years and at the start of
    development had lots of hopes and dreams for Vista, ie, their now
    discredited wow factor, but they dropped the ball over and over
    pulling one real tangible improvement after another from early designs
    resulting in little more than some overpriced face life. Five years
    time and over a billion in development costs what we got is well, lets
    just say disappointing.

    Call me a cynic if you must, but the reality seems a lot of what got
    pulled from Vista was intentional. We as customers have been set up to
    anticipate the next version of Windows which may include some of
    things that we were told were to be part of Vista. I for one am tired
    of being treated like a greyhound in some dog race, where a mechanical
    rabbit causes the dogs to chase after it and it of course just remains
    out of reach so the dogs keep chasing it around the race track.

    P. T. Barnum would be proud of Ballmer. There's also the wait till
    next time carrot he dangles in front of customers. I'm tired of
    playing that game.
