Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y OSNews regular Kaiwai takes a superficial look at Vista and MacOS 10.4/10.5, and concludes: "To say that the changes in Windows Vista are only skin deep is missinformed to say the least; spend some time reading those sources I have listed, and even if you don't have a desire to run Windows Vista or particular interested in Windows based technology, it does provide some good resources explaining the changes and rationale behind those choices made. So from a purely technical point of view, Windows Vista is actually looking a whole lot more interesting than what the detractors have been saying in the computer press about the current direction."

Not everyone buys bigger monitors to make things smaller. For instance, laptop resolutions have been on the rise for years, to the point where it's difficult finding one with XGA these days. Anyway, as long as things are adjustable, I wholeheartedly support an entire scalable UI. XP defaults ARE too small on my screen, and I am a young person, but I prefer not to squint. KDE and GNOME generally get it right off the bat, but XP defaults are tiny, and XP's scalability settings are way less intuitive than they should be--plus they only apply to fonts....
