Thanks VegasDen,

I disagree with his assesment of lbraries, but then I have Shawn's excellent tutorials to show me how everything works.

Geesh. It goes to show how desperate people want to get off Vista....they are reviewing a BETA. I bet that was MS's plan all along *does his best Monte Burns finger steeple* Exccccellent!


MWAhAHAHAHA!

The article is annoying as heck in that it says that its a rip-off of the dock on OSX...umm no it isn't. If anything its going back to 3.11....kinda if you squint at it and cover your right eye.
The touch is a rip off of the iPhone...yah because no other device on the market had touch prior to the iPhone...oh wait. Yes they did. And Apple did NOT pioneer multi-touch.
And desktop wallpaper auto changing...ummm I can't remember when Linux got this...I think from day one.
Seriously. Enough with the MS ripping off Apple. No one complained when Apple introduced fast user switching in Tiger.

lol, yeah. It's boring. Very boring. Every OS has 'borrowed' ideas from others dating back to pre-windows era. Hell, Windows was 'inspired' by Visi On back in 1983.... So MS 'borrowing' ideas is nothing new. As long as the new features implemented work as well, if not better, then who cares where it came from?

Well, even if they made a Windows version identical to some other OS, they still have all the market on their feet, so they'd prevail...
So let's just enjoy new features, borrowed or not, cause it's in our final benefit

It's almost ALL Microsoft has done with every 'new' OS they've released! With the exception of Windows ME, (This generation's Vista, btw... sell a hugely advertised and anticipated new OS and have a new one right behind it guaranteed to sell because the previous one sucked so much!).

MS has 'stolen' everything they could get away with not having to buy.

I've been playing solitaire on my computer since? (well I can't really remember that far back) So when I first loaded Windows 7 (true also with Vista) I found that MS had actually paid some guy to mess it up the look and feel of Solitaire (expletives deleted). It looks really sick and doesn't...
