I remember thinking how sad Vista looked when they showed off the scrolling sideways windows thingy. And the Beagle'sh search function? Please - anyone remember using Best?

Thanks for posting I needed a good laugh.

I love the soundtrack for the Vista vs Beryl demo. Can anyone tell me who does it and the name of the track?

I've used both Vista & Linux and I'd switch but I've got way too many Corel graphics files going back 10 years to make a permanent switch. Otherwise, I'd be there.

But how much of this stuff constitutes a real increase in usability and/or functionality and how much of it is merely tedious crud that people will get bored with once the novelty wears off?
