It bothers me that the most talked about new feature is the fancy gui. That is by far the least interesting thing to me about this next windows. I can't stand the thought of having my work slowed down because 2gb of ram isnt enough to look at websites anymore or look at websites and have photoshop open.

I want to know why it will be better and how it can improve my productivity and gaming experiences. I bet after I install Vista for the first time, I turn all the fancy shit off in the first ten minutes. Another thing that bugs me is that when in 2D mode (Windows) your graphics card is using minimal power (~60watts) and when you're gaming of course it's chewing far more. I don't want my graphics card under 100% load 24/7 and costing me more money in power bills.

I'd love to see Vista fall flat on it's ass, and then see Apple come out of the blue with OS X support for PCs.

100% AGREE! I turn all the fancy shit off (including the desktop wallpaper) in the first ten minutes too Smile I hate to have slow PC....
