Just wanted your take on the increasing hype in the windows-centric media.

edit (maybe I should have put this in the "other OS" forum)

It will be good if it works however it will be pretty much like XP but made far to simple which will resule in about 80 clicks to change a desktop and i dread to think what will need to be done to mess around with things like the bootloader

No, it's lots of old paradigms with the Microsoft logo stuck on the front.

I thought it was a load of very old paradigms patched with some newer paradigms and then some external modules(viruses or drm) with a Microparp Logo stuck on the front. I'm sure that the Heath-Robison family ought to issue a solicitors note to Billy boy.

Whats amazing about Vista is they had a relatively good idea in the relational database indexed file system and then went and dropped it in order to concentrate on a stack of features that are common.

Oh dear ....., or maybe just an old ploy. That is a joke question/statement isn't it. Yep ... i knew that :rolll:

They possibly realise that if they were to run with "good ideas", there is the real danger that their customers will come to expect more of the same, or at least some continuence. That alone could over turn their whole strategy for future releases.

Why not go back to DOS then. I'm still annoyed they took out format. I tell people the best program on Windows is 'format c:' and it doesn't bloody do anything anymore.

Is there any news on the Vista CLI, can you actually do stuff from it now.

What do they mean almost on par. I expect they mean it has fake transparency or something.

It probably means that it is better than the Dos command shell ( not difficult )

Does it mean that if you gave a million monkeys a million years they may eventually type a useful command in the shell.

Either it's a direct rippoff of the shell, but altered to hide that, and so degraded in the process. Or just an empty marking comment. Probably degrees of both. I suppose "Vista' is supposed to suggest something along the lines of "views". With a kind of lose relationship with 'windows' being portals to vistas. hmmmmm, not impressed yet with the marketing team Smile

The only view I'm looking forward to is the enevitable MS brand Vista coaster in a few years time
