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.

20 ways to flame Vista

So the question is, are Microsoft and ATI correct that I might hit a video brick wall when running my 64MB ATI X300 in full Aero mode with transparency enabled? Time will tell. But I definitely don't like the idea that my recent hardware investments are suddenly out of date. And I very much doubt I'm alone with that feeling.

For someone who is apparently qualified to write an article like this he shows exceptional ignorance.

He bought a bottom of the range graphics this year to prepare for Vista? my heart bleeds that his 30 card will be out of date by next year.

I too have many reservations about Vista and was interested to know what his points were, once he mentioned OSX I immediately realised his intentions and left him to wallow in his own propaganda.
