Windows Right before the end of 2006, Paul Thurrott completed his 8-part review of Windows Vista. His final conclusion: "Vista is a better operating system than the competition, for reasons that are both technical and practical. But for the hundreds of millions of people who will move to Vista in the coming years, all that will really matter is that it's a major improvement over XP. And it most certainly is that as well."

Better than Windows XP, or any other Windows? Sure! You finally have least privilege not just _present_ but _working_, got a fancy new UI and spiffy new features, you're already lightyears ahead of XP.

Better than the other OSs?
Vista, Linux, OS X. Guess which of these OSs required disabling and re-enabling wireless networking every time I woke it from sleep? (A clue: NetworkManager does it correctly in Linux.)
