"Much ado about nothing"3.0 starson by oliverward
Pros: attractive, more "user friendly", more intelligent interface
Cons: too little too late
Summary: Having been a windows user for most of my profesional life, i was really looking to Vista - a much needed upgrade to XP. To be perfectly honest, after all the time that went into making Vista what it is today, all the delays and all the fuss, my firm opinion is "is that it?".
At the end of the day, Vista is basically XP with a visual upgrade, a few more functionality tweaks in terms of being more user-friendly (or dare i say it - mac like), and not much else. What with most users having to seriously upgrade their pc to run it, it seems that the trade off is a little unfair.
If you are seriously bored with XP then upgrade by all means, just don't expect to be blown away.
