"This is not a carbon copy of OSX. It is a fairly solid release."3.5 starson by bluarash
Pros: Slick interface, bitlocker, nice architecture, and rich programming libraries. This is clearly the future of operating systems.
Cons: Search needs some timing improvements, UAC needs, I still prefer UNIX, and too many versions.
Summary: I am tired of the Apple FUD being spread on this site. There is nothing wrong with having an opinion, but people need to keep objectivity in mind when doing a review. The Vista operating system is neither a 1 nor a 10. Further, it is not a carbon copy of OSX.
It has a number of very interesting features. A number of which are not even found in OSX. One would do themselves a service to download the Windows Vista Product Guide (as a comparison).
