“Microsoft’s decision to incorporate Tablet PC features and functionality into the Windows Vista operating system is one that eWEEK Labs believes will help to convert Tablet PC skeptics. We installed the operating system on two Tablet PCs – Lenovo’s ThinkPad X60 Tablet and Fujitsu’s LifeBook T4215 – and found that Microsoft has delivered a much more practical and smoother tablet experience in Vista.” Microsoft also released an upgrade to its ‘Origami’ version of Windows.
‘Vista Shines As Tablet Platform’

Won’t it burn your hands with the GPU-intensive effects needed by Vista ?
They must have stripped it down to fit in…
I have a laptop, in it’s 3rd year, with a mobility radeon 9600; not exactly the speediest GPU available. There is one difference: it runs under linux/compiz/beryl. There is no noticeable increase of temperature, battery draw or performance loss.
I would assume that MS also has it’s act together and wouldn’t need a lot of horsepower to accomplish a few cheap (performance/cycle wise) effects.
Besides, the AERO interface can be shut down.
Multiple desktops would btw be a much better and easier way to attack the well known desktop clutter. It’s bene there for years. I wonder why MS doesn’t do this..
It’s only me that thinks that the tablet platform it’s a colossal flop?
