Graphics, User Interfaces When Windows Vista was released in early 2007, a significant amount of attention was given to the new user interface called Aero, that sets out to give Windows a slicker look and feel and promises more fluid operation. But eye-candy aside, how does the new Aero interface stack up compared to Windows XP and Mac OS X in terms of low-level user interface efficiency? "Windows Vista increases the amount of user interface friction of the operating system. Windows XP and particularly Mac OS X performed better than Windows Vista in these benchmarks."

command prompt is very efficient to watch video/picture

Actually it can serve that purpose perfectly fine, just try mplayer on framebuffer.
Now if you was talking about advanced image/video edition...
