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.

I have to use Windows to get anything out of my considerable investment in games.

Sorry for going a little OT, but how many of your games still don't work correctly under Wine?

My concern with Vista is seeing if the API changes in a way that make new apps not work under Wine. So the author's comment about no new features beyond XP sounds good to me.
