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.

Indeed. 10 FPS on a typical DX9 benchmark at 10x7, and 6 FPS in Doom 3 at 10x7 really does qualify as "with ease".

Aero = heavy DX9 shader usage.

Don't bring your ignorance into the debate. X300s are weaksauce.
