June 01, 2006 (Computerworld) The same thing happened with Windows XP. When Beta 2 arrived, I found myself torn between what was new and good about the operating system, and what was new and bad.

Significant negatives back in 2001 included product activation (which doesn't affect Microsoft volume licensing customers), changes to the network-configuration user interface and the way XP interacted with other versions of Windows on small networks. Was Windows XP truly better than Windows 2000? It was a toss-up in many ways. In the end, I went with the improved app compatibility and user interface improvements of XP. But it wasn't by much.

Well, Microsoft just upped the ante on internal conflict with the release of Vista Beta 2. It boils down to this: The software giant is favoring security and IT controls over end-user productivity. Don't get me wrong, security and IT manageability are very good things. But some of the people actually using the Beta 2 Vista software describe their experience as akin to that of a rat caught in a maze.

Lol... after a long time reading and understanding this article (non english primary language dude), my deduction is: Don't ever, ever make the mistake of getting windows vista.

I don't care if they can show me stuff prettier, but if the main errors are still there, what's the point in getting a "more requierements needs" OS...

I really should buy a powerbook G4

I am going to get Vista for one reason. This computer is Vista ready and will handle it. If i am gonna use an OS with errors in it might as well use one that looks worse. (I do see a mini Mac though in my future too.)

lol...
I just can't stand windows trying to make me feel stupid. I can't stand a program (any program) that thinks that can choose what is better or not for me, that includes office's autoformat, windows alerts, spywares, etc...
I DO know what i can do, and when i realize i am not capable, i just don't do it... that is one of my reasons of why not getting vista. But i will admit, that the GUI temptates me anyway :huh:
