Windows Ten years ago today, Microsoft launched what would become the world's most popular desktop operating system - for better or worse. Its interface colours were... Interesting (trying hard to avoid bias here, folks, bear with me now). Its early performance was... Not always entirely up to par. Its security track record was... Well, it sucked hard in that department (I tried). We're ten years down the line, and thanks to Vista, way too many people are still using this relic.

Interesting, that looks roughly on par with my Intel 945 stuff in terms of performance. Maybe the drivers are better... 2D definitely sucks on the Intel stuff.

(OTOH, 2D has sucked on every chipset I've ever used on Linux.)
