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.

"Next-gen features (Aero) require next-gen hardware. He's complaining that his laptop with a 64 MB X300 isn't enough to run Aero at its highest eye-candy levels ... well boo-hoo."

Since a 64 MB X300 runs demanding 3D games with ease, but isn't adequate in running Aero to the fullest, we can safely assume that Aero is an inefficient hog. But hey, don't let that get in the way of trivializing complaints about Aero.
