Windows "One of the more questionable tactics that Microsoft has implemented in Vista is to automatically overwrite any existing MBR during the installation process without asking if you mind or giving you an option to back up. Microsoft says that the Windows installation system can't intelligently interrogate an existing non-MS MBR, although such features are quite common in the install routine for other OSes."

Would be even better if MS found all non-MS partitions and deleted them, since people who dual boot are technically savvy and know how to reinstall their other OS.

I'm not quite sure why anybody would bump the score on this article for such an inane comment. This site is going downhill...
