Welcome to IWETHEY!

New This is interesting
Over at AtariAge somebody posted [link|http://www.atariage.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=87346|Anyone gonna buy Vista when it comes out?] The responses are predominantly nope, moving to or have OS X, or moving to or have Linux.

New What's in it for a gamer?
Halo 2? So you spend (say) $200 on an OS that's going to slow down your computer just so you can play the PC version of a game that's at best mediocre (Halo = poo. Only the XBox people got excited about it, and Halo 2 is just more Halo) and the thick end of 2 years old?

What a deal!

Also, your link is broken.

New broken? Works for me...
ah - that forum isn't accessible unless you're logged in.

Only one person mentioned Halo 2

New I don't know anybody that is looking forward to Vista
I don't know anybody, gaming or buisness that is looking forward to Vista. The most positive I have heard is 'I might get it if a cool game comes out that requires it.' MS seems to be moving to work that angle hard, but they are going to need some better games.

The buisness people I talk too (mostly from the techy end) are looking at it with a sense of dread. Reorganized interface means lots of upgrade support, hardware requirements that few buisness machines meet will be a problem .

Most of then have not really looked into the question yet though, as nobody expects it to be a serious question till this time next year at the earliest.

New My neighbor (who works QA there)
tells me the compelling reason to get it is improved security. Like IE runs in a sandbox where it can't access system resources now. But that's pretty much it.

New That's unpossible
IE is an integral part of the OS. How could it run in a sandbox? You must have heard that wrong.

New The sandbox is also an integral part of the OS
and IE runs inside of it.

So it is all integrated into the OS.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. (Herm Albright)
