20 things you won’t like about Vista



I don’t know, it seems excessively wine-y to gripe about an operating system that isn’t released yet, but I’ve seen people do that about linux quite a bit…. (why doesn’t xyz work in beta 1 of _____ distribution….) It’s a beta, there will be many things that aren’t likable, report it where they’re looking for feedback… That much said, there was an article out at Computer world detailing the 20 things you’ll dislike with Vista. Of course, given that it’s a beta things will likely change (yeah – there’ll be 30 things you don’t like by the full release…. sorry had to be said.) Seriously, hopefully Microsoft is listening to this feedback. I’ve heard that they are aware they need to make the UAP less “in your face all the time…”


I’ve said before that I’m sort of dreading Vista, just for the disruption that I see coming. That may not be a bad thing from a “tightening the desktop security” point of view, but… anyway.

Between the Lines wonders if Vista will be the beginning of a decline for the Windows product line. Realistically if you are on 90%+ of the worlds desktop pcs, do you realistically think they will INCREASE market share… I know, they’re dominant, but many places in the developing world are eager to use alternatives and those alternatives are getting better all the time.
