Windows "Microsoft has just released the latest installment of the Windows Vista pre-RC1 builds, with Vista Build 5472.5 making its way to TAP and Tech Beta tester today, and for once, MSDN Subscribers too. Build 5472.5 is a standard FRE Staged build, only available in English at the moment, though Arabic, Japanese, and German builds may follow. At this point all the builds we are seeing seem to undergoing severe stages of heavy optimization: although faster code normally comes at the expense of larger files as a rule of thumb, this build of Windows Vista packs a punch performance-wise, but is only a 100 MB larger than its predecessor.

It certainly sounds like you enjoy the way windows works for you, congrats, you fall into the majority.

I do not appreciate the way it stores libraries in memory, the way the priority works, or how userspace is allocated, nor do I like being restricted from controlling my computer,and i do not enjoy just using half of the bits on my processor.

Then there is the most annoying aspect, this assumption that all people us GUI, and as such, they castrate the CLI to the point that its useless.

Atleast with MacOS X, the developers realise that there are still some old schoolers like me out there who would rather use the CLI tools, and pipe the out put through several commands rather than having to use half a dozen tools to accomplish the same task.
