I found this link interesting, nice quote:

"Indeed, Aero looks nearly as good as KDE, although it demands about three times the system resources."

I wonder how many Europeans will dump Windows after their latest pricing scam. Probably few.

I did read that article - on digital tv spy forum under computing - and thought it summed things up.
Did you know it won't let you have Firefox as a default browser? A damn fine reason not to touch it IMHO.

I enjoyed this review of Vista on The Register. Especially this bit:

I'm sure Gnome aficionados would disagree Smile


Interesting, that worked, the whole quote has become a link, well, the text bits anyway Smile

I know, if ever a subject belonged in Off-topic, it's motogp, but there we go. I'm not going to bang the "keep on topic" drum lest I be accused of hypocrisy Smile

Quote:
From Italian.

Pronunciation

* IPA: /'vɪstə/

Noun

Singular
vista


Plural
vistas

vista (plural vistas)

1. A distant view or prospect, especially one seen through some opening.
2. A site offering such a view.


Which is as close has I want to get to it.

I suppose I'll have to use if they upgrade at work but that's another story.
