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.

Does Quartz do compositing?
Does Quartz render text using the graphics card?
Does Quartz store all rednered windows as objects in video memory?

I didn't think it did all of these.

edit: This is a pretty good read of other things WPF does that are cool for developers: http://msdn.microsoft.com/winfx/technologies/presentation/default.a...
