Re: "Vista Capable" lawsuit goes class-action !
I actually feel sorry for Microsoft on this...the whole Vista Capable program reeked of Marketing Department, not OS Development.
I bet someone in the corporate partners program thought it was a good way of getting some more sales for Dell, HP, and other OEMs, so who cared if the specs were right?
And, of course, the end user suffers.
Microsoft is full of bright, capable, people...sad to see that they keep tripping over themselves.
Anyway, I beta-ed Vista, and I was || close to buying it, but couldn't pull the trigger.
Personally, I think it is a step forward for most desktop users, particularly with UAC enabled. Most people hate it, but I think it is a step in the right direction.
Keep in mind that those of us on BSD or Linux forums are technology elites....we don't click on everything that says "download me" like most of the great unwashed and clueless masses...having the OS say "are you sure you want to do that Kemosabe?" About damn time!
Other than that, I found Vista reasonably quick, with some nice eye candy, and...I'm really struggling for praise, I guess. It fixes a bunch of things wrong with XP/2000 and creates some new issues.
