Windows "eWEEK Labs has been testing Microsoft Windows Vista builds for more than three years, and our evaluation of the final code shows that the new operating system is a significant improvement over its predecessor, Windows XP. What's more, with a raft of subsystem and driver model improvements, Microsoft has laid out in Vista a solid foundation for stability and usability gains in future Windows versions. For enterprises running XP on their desktops and notebooks, however, a Vista upgrade is no slam-dunk. While Vista's new UAC facilities can make it easier for companies to appropriately lock down their desktops, for instance, it's quite possible to run a well-managed shop of XP machines, either out of the box or with the aid of lockdown tools."

... but put Directory Opus on the machine, and no other file manager made thus far can touch it.

I disagree. Far Manger ( http://www.farmanager.com ) is the best file manager for Windows. Many get put off by the fact that it's a console application, but the power it gives the user is simply astonishing.

It's one of the very few applications that keeps me tied to the Windows world.
