Windows Forbes takes a look at Vista, and writes: "More than five years in the making, more than 50 million lines of code. The result? A vista slightly more inspiring than the one over the town dump. The new slogan is: 'The Wow Starts Now', and Microsoft touts new features, many filched shamelessly from Apple's Macintosh. But as with every previous version, there's no wow here, not even in ironic quotes. Vista is at best mildly annoying and at worst makes you want to rush to Redmond, Wash. and rip somebody's liver out." They also look at Office 2007.

I use Beryl on my workstation in the office and I can't remember the last time it crashed on me.

I did however get repeatedly bitten by a really stupid misfeature whereby if I accidentally held down shift while correcting a typo with the delete key Xgl would bomb out.

I found a way to remove the key mapping, and have never had Beryl or Xgl unexpectedly go south since.

Mind you, I've turned off a lot of the sillier effects like wobbly windows and focus "shivering".
