Windows Computerworld's Scot Finnie details 20 things you won't like in Windows Vista, with a visual tour to prove it. He says that MS has favored security over end-user productivity, making the user feel like a rat caught in a maze with all the protect-you-from-yourself password-entry and 'Continue' boxes required by the User Account Controls feature. "Business and home users will be nonplussed by the blizzard of protect-you-from-yourself password-entry and 'Continue' boxes required by the User Account Controls feature, for example." Update: Apparantly, Vista Beta 2 sucks up battery juice much faster than XP does.

The other reason is that this is a next-gen OS. How long does Fedora Core 5 take to install vs. Redhat 7? Windows XP vs. Windows 95?

It takes FC5 20 mins to do a full (everything) install on my system,configuration,etc incl.
