I don't think they thought about it that way. For example, Adobe Illustrator is hanging on me every few minutes or so and if you try clicking anything in it it will brok up the rendering prodfucing some white lines and stuff like that. For some reason even the systray becomes borked, because of it. It's only after I close AI and hit F5 that the screen becoems normal again. In Vista the application won't be able to do that. In my example AI wouldn't be able to bork systray or the AI window itself, but it would still appear hung.

btw, I think I've seen a screenshot of Vista showing when an application is not responding. A small popup box apears at the close button (x) of that application stating that the app is not responding etc...

"For example, Adobe Illustrator is hanging on me every few minutes"

Stop using crap.

"For some reason even the systray becomes borked, because of it."

Shall I repeat?

"In Vista the application won't be able to do that. In my example AI wouldn't be able to bork systray or the AI window itself, but it would still appear hung. "

So because those programs are terrible coded and your favourite OS is a mess this is a actually a feature? Wouldn't be more smart to make programs better? Yeah,
I know, redesigning a whole OS and break compatibility
with all those crapy apps is not an option.
