Windows Okay, so this is new. When it comes to graphical user interfaces, everyone is copying everyone, but you'll always find supporters of platform Abc claiming platform Xyz is stealing from them - and vice versa. Mac supporters have often stated that Vista and Windows 7 were copying from Apple, and according to Microsoft's partner group manager, Simon Aldous, this is true. Wait, what?

Sorry, but but is this real ???

"...is create a Mac look and feel in terms of graphics. We've significantly improved the graphical user interface, but it's built on that very stable core Vista technology, which is far more stable than the current Mac platform, for instance."

This is the biggest joke I've ever heard from someone, oh my God i'm still laughing...it's built on that very stable core Vista technology......

What type of drugs make someone say things like this ?

The same ones that Linux fans take to fool themselves into thinking that it will ever be a player on the desktop scene or anything other than a server OS LOL. Linux has already failed on both the netbook and desktop fronts.

Besides, I assume you probably got your evidence from a friend of a friend who used Vista. As someone in a tech position who encountered and used it all the time, it was at least as good as XP and a far sight better than the competition.

I'm a system Administrator and I work every day with BSD (FreeBSD, OpenBSD), Linux (fedora, Ubuntu, Slackware...) and also Windows 2003, 2008, Windows 7 and Vista.

And yes windows is bad compared to any of the others, it is miles away from OSX.

Dont say things you don't know, UAC is the dumbest thing implemented.

Telnet ?? where is the client, oh right it is not installed by default.

Ok 10GB of instalations and I only have a Calculator and a Wordpad ???? Don't joke with me

Ok let's start messenger and email client....What no email client and messenger after 10GB of instalations ??? I have to donwload that manually ? Hum very good...

2GB of ram only to run VISTA?? 2 minutes minimum to start and shutdonw vista ? Yes it is very stable, common don't be naive.

Vista is a piece of crap without any inovation, and a resource hog.
