I dunno, Have you tried it? Transparency is great for people who work on PC's for a living.
Well, if you choose to do that you pay the price. A properly setup unix box needs root for nothing. A properly setup Vista would be the same. Vista virutalizes the hardware so you don't need to reboot to install devices and if your granted the ability to do so more power to you.
Have you used Desktop Search? the first thing it says is it will follow your profile. If your doing anything its not indexing and if your on battery it isn't indexing. YOu have to CHOOSE to enable those.. Same goes with every other desktop search i've seen.
You miss the point of this feature. Superfetch requires the appropriate hardware and isn't mean to make Vista run as fast as XP on old hardware.
Just where are you standing? Are you a developer? Are you an end user? Are you interested in Next Gen Gaming? Are you looking for more security? Are you looking to take advantage of the higher throughput and capacity it can handle? Are you running multiple cores? Do you spend hours writing docuemnts? Do you have multiple desktops and windows open and do lots of multitasking? Just what do you do on your PC? Are you into seemless networking, sharing, document/image and data sharing? do you do desktop publishing? are you interested in PVR, HDTV content or online media? do you want something that challenges computing as it is today or what?
I'm 30.. i see past the "coolness" of the GUI and the real update to the guts.
Sounds like the entire Mac product line.. Cool until you realiase you just traded one headache for another.
Clippy? thats so 1997 its not even funny. With success comes lots of failure but you don't even know your highs and lows until you experience them. I think MS is on to something and most people are holding grudges for the wrong (childish) reasons.
OH great.. talk about preaching something thats all fluff and hot air. Your comments have real validity now!
BTW, i use Linux, Solaris, Windows and OSX. They all serve a great purpose and i'm not Microsoft fanboy by anymeans.. i was an OS/2 biggot for years and now i just run what works but i'm seriously interested in seeing Vista push the envelop in personal computing and look forward to what we saw in 1995 when computing had to catch up to the software that was coming down in not just the OS but the Games and everything else made possible.
