Vista – My Two Roubles
OK well, there is a lot of hype about Windows Vista lately, and since everyone decided to share their opinions, the conformist that I am, I'm going to share mine. First of all, if macs ran windows apps, I would say screw you to windows and switch. But since they don't, and since because of that I will probably never have a mac, I'm going to have to deal with Vista eventually.
First of all, a lot of people say that Vista looks all nice and pretty, but even though I agree for the most part, I think that the weird close/minimize buttons don't suit me. Also, I'm kind of worried about being able to run it, although I'm probably going to buy a new computer soon. Also, if I'm going to buy a laptop sometime in the near future (and I am) then I'm worried about the complaints that Vista Aero is a giant battery hog.
Secondly, Vista better be more secure. There are no viruses for macs. None. Microsoft sure as hell better step it up in term of security, or I'm going to have to get a MacBook and dual boot (if not triple).
Thirdly, the search feature is integrated into Vista everywhere, but am I the only one worried that this will actually confuse some people who are used to the original system? And how is archiving going to work if you don't even use the folders? Or do you? Then what's the big deal?
Lastly, as any computer user I'm pretty exited, but seriously, is it ACTUALLY going to come out in January? Like..actually?
