Windows Computerworld's Scot Finnie details 20 things you won't like in Windows Vista, with a visual tour to prove it. He says that MS has favored security over end-user productivity, making the user feel like a rat caught in a maze with all the protect-you-from-yourself password-entry and 'Continue' boxes required by the User Account Controls feature. "Business and home users will be nonplussed by the blizzard of protect-you-from-yourself password-entry and 'Continue' boxes required by the User Account Controls feature, for example." Update: Apparantly, Vista Beta 2 sucks up battery juice much faster than XP does.

I really like Scot Finnie, I have been subscribed to his windows newsletter ( http://www.scotsnewsletter.com/ ) since about 2001. This guy is a hard-core Windows enthousiast, when he rates OsX Tiger as better than Vista (Beta) it is really something to consider.
Microsoft is losing mindshare among their opinion-leaders, not a good thing to happen to a company.

Edit: added link to newsletter.
