    I went to a vista dev training thing a few weeks ago, one of the key bits of
    vista is to reduce the need for lots of dialogs.

    When i post a new message to this news group, i have to click 4!!!

    One to cancel passport
    One to OK the cancel (just incase I didn't mean to :) )
    One to let me know that newsgroups are public
    One to say it may take time

    And,, if i spell check, add one more

    /end of rant :)

    The default mail / news reader.

    I can just change my settings, but the point that they were trying to make
    on the training was, you mum would not change the settings, so your mum
    would always have lots of buttons to press and my mum wouldn't understand
    most of it ;)

  6. I do know what you mean - however Windows Mail is a seperate dirivative in
    the Windows Vista group - so they'll probably get round to the UX tweaks
    later on :eek:)

    We hope anyway...
