Windows "It's unusual for a Beta 1 version of Windows to have both the final shipping name of the product and as many new features as this build shows. And that's a strong sign of two things. Firstly: Windows Vista remains an ambitious release of Windows, despite some of the features that Microsoft has pushed off the side of the boat. Secondly: Microsoft is trying to get serious, both internally and externally, about this development program. Windows Vista is now the company's top priority." Read on, ten pages, here.

I have two XP machines here at home. I'm not a fan of XP at all, it does the job, but you have to fight with it every so often and give it a good shake to get things done. Why do I have XP? I'm a programmer, I need to write code for it.

I love OS X, some things XP/NT have (such as completion ports) that I wish OS X had, but there is plenty of stuff OS X has which I don't find as nicely done in XP. I also like the dev enviroment on the Mac, I prefer Cocoa/Obj-C to C++ and even C#, but that is purely a personal taste. I do wish Delphi existed on the Mac :-)

Having said all this, I am now a little hopeful tht Vista will make my PC life a little better. From this article it does look good compared to XP, which is probably what we should be comparing against, not OS X or Linux.
