Windows Microsoft has released an interim build of Windows Vista, Build 5342, today to a select group of testers. This is the first build to come with the 'real' Aero Glass: fully scalable vector based transparencies that take advantage of pixel shading. The previous builds contained Aero Express and Aero Express with transparancy, not the real Aero Glass. Other notable improvements: a complete firewall, support for Pocket PC 2000, 2002, and 2003 synchronization, and more. Flexbeta has screenshots, but Flexbeta seems pretty down to me at the moment.

Nowadays you cant argue that Gnu/Linux is safier then Windows. You can secure Windoze quite good, if you know what to change yaddayadda..

Anyway there are some people that argue in the situation of freedom and privacy - I don't think the main reason to move to Gnu/Linux will be a more secure os; instead more freedom and privacy.

So in the end, I cannot say something before Vista have been used for 3,4 years - but the argument Gnu/Linux is more secure wouldn't be there anymore.

As Microsoft cannot show like gnome hackers have done recently how they have been optimizing the code (GSlice etc....) They have to show something viewable.
In this way I understand them.

You cannot really speak anything about Aero, itsn't a finished product yet.
So people..before argue, wait for the beeeep!
