Windows Ars takes a quick look at Vista RC1, and concludes: "Using it as my daily workhorse for two weeks has taught me a lot of things, the first of which is that Vista is doing better than many of its critics are claiming. A day after RC1 was available to select partners, the wires lit up with story after story about how 'Vista isn't ready'. No, it's not ready. It's a release candidate, at best, a late-stage beta at worst. Having actually used the OS for a while, I'm not so sure that the sky is falling claims have much merit."

Edgy Eft builds upon Dapper, and Dapper is rock solid. There are a few things under the hood that are indeed new, but generally speaking it is an evolving thing.

What I don't understand about Vista: What is so damn new about it that it justifies such a long development circle? I completely fail to see that. But maybe it's just me ...
