Windows CNet has reviewed Windows Vista, and the concluded: "Perhaps we're spoiled, but after more than five years of development, there's a definite 'Is that all?' feeling about Windows Vista. Like cramming an info-dump into a book report the night before it's due, there certainly are a lot of individual features within the operating system, but the real value lies in their execution - how the user experiences (or doesn't experience) these - and like the info-dump, we came away shaking our heads, disappointed." Additionally, Vista's OEM pricing details are out and about.

Sorry, but nobody will get any peace once it's fully released either. The comparison articles will continue for months. You'll also get the flame articles and the FUD articles and the TRUTH articles. Of course we can't for get the security articles and the articles about nothing.

When Vista is fully out we're going to get more articles. If you are a Vista or Microsoft fan you'll eat 'em up, but if your not you hate them.

I take it from that sentence that you have not tried Vista.

When you do, you will realise that not even one die-hard Microsoft fan will enjoy the "benefits" of Vista.

I have used Vista. I've used it with all the bells and whistles turned on and working. It is impressive looking, but so is xgl/compiz.

Not everybody is going to go nuts for Vista (me being one of those people), but some will just think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. Those people will love any favorable review of Vista.
