Windows Today, 00:00 CET, Vista will be on sale here in The Netherlands; some computer shops will even be open tonight to cater to the early adopters. In all honesty, I do not think we will see Windows 95-like craziness, but still, I think a simple poll is in order. What is the feature in Windows Vista you have been looking forward to the most?

Are you serious? Without overwriting the MBR, Vista has no way of knowing whether it will boot up. Do you expect them to support 5 (or maybe more) filesystems and edit /boot/grub/menu.lst ? Maybe they should just include the Linux kernel so that it can alter /boot/grub/menu.lst ? That obviously isn't practical.

It isn't purposely harming other OSes. It's just doing what you asked it to when you entered your license key - making Vista usable on your computer.
