The Vista posts are everywhere... Still I have some more stuff to say.
Things I like in Vista:
- new default font
- speech recognition (useless but fun to play with and show to you granny)
- windows explorer speed
- aero & flip 3D
- shift + right click on a filename gives you "copy as path" command
Things I don't like in Vista:
- the backspace key performs as "Back" actions, but it used to be "Up"
- Visual Studio 2005 needs some special care
And a question I hear a lot these days: Why upgrade to Vista?
Most of use dream of having a gorgeous machine and a different OS. But we don't because we couldn't do so much stuff we do today (development wise mostly).
Well, Windows Vista is somehow half way there. You get cool UI but you still know how to change your monitors frequency without a book and in less than 2 hours. I still think MS hit the sweet spot. Why are you not upgrading? Just get some RAM, maybe a new hard drive (the old is full of divx movies you will never see anyway).
