Cant say i like the aritcle myself its not 20 things you wnot like about Vista its 20 things THAT GUY doesnt like about Beta 2 among his compaints were at least half a dozen bugs and testing features and beta features panned for being beta features. If it was a final OS fair enough but its not, its still 6 months at best from completion.

Also it doesnt seem the most objective, he seems to be a mac fanboy and sure OSX is a decent OS but i cant say agree with him on how good it is because frankly i think MAC OS sucks i dont like them or the way they have worked for all the years ive had to use them.

This guy has obviously never even USED Vista beta 2!!! Read this closely:

"the ability to save searches as dynamic collections"

That feature was ruled out - what, a year ago?

I don't have the time to read 13 pages of this guy's garbage. It sounds more like he googled for information about Vista and never actually used it himself.

im not as excited about the os as i am about some of the performance boosting features and dx10, if they put the features in xp i would happily use it for another 5 years.

scott, i'm not sure what your big problem here is but you of all people should be setting a better example on the g2g forums.

stuff like this
{sure OSX is a decent OS but i cant say agree with him on how good it is because frankly i think MAC OS sucks i dont like them}
is just not necessary

as an old member who reads a lot and posts little i think someone needs to tell you to clean up your language and make your posts more constructive than destructive. on with the vista discussions

LMAO you are objecting to the word Sucks? I was stating my opinion i dont like Mac OS i hate them with a passion after being forced to use them for many years even though they were totally inappropriate to the use.

I think you need to get a life mate.

dittos lol. That's like AOL. When I complain about them on forums, sometimes people tell me that I should actually try AOL before I pass judgement. Well, hello! I was stuck with their terrible service for more than half a decade. I know what I'm talking about. AOL is terrible lol.

I'm probably not going to upgrade to Vista anytime soon. I may just hold out for Vienna. Vista has far too many problems. I've actually considered switching completely to Linux because I wouldn't really miss any programs because just about everything I use was originally written for Linux.
