Windows Today, 00:00 CET, Vista will be on sale here in The Netherlands; some computer shops will even be open tonight to cater to the early adopters. In all honesty, I do not think we will see Windows 95-like craziness, but still, I think a simple poll is in order. What is the feature in Windows Vista you have been looking forward to the most?

My favorite would be whichever version has that nifty "format c:" command.

Probably need the "Ultimate" or "super-duper" version for $399.00 to get that.

Worth it to me though, I'll bend over for any price Microsoft asks me to pay.

You know that for about $500,- you can have a new Mac running OS X, don't you?

Eh? Tell me where that shop is, the cheapest Mac I could find would be the Mac mini, *starting* at $599. I'd get 1GB of Ram with that too, so that makes $674.00. And if you want the 1,83Ghz Core due with superdrive (DVD writer instead of DVDRom/RW) with 1GB of ram, it's $874.00.

Which isn't bad, but not quite $500.

If I was Apple, I'd drop the price of a Mac Mini to the exact price of Windows Vista Ultimate, if only to taunt Steve Ballmer. Oops, that's my evil side coming out again ;)
