I realise that (in all three) you can customise the colours etc., but
those huge popup mini-representations of the windows ... and that
Start Bar with the user avitar (puppy dog or whatever) ... and the
whole "Media Center" presentation of everything .... uuuurgh! No
thanks. It's not an OS, it's an OSD for a DVD Player. And that's
*before* you start looking at the garbage underneath. Yuk.
I was projecting a bit, from the WWDC 2006 that I saw yesterday.
The demos at WWDC 2006 were impressive, especially the "Spaces" and
"Time Machine" demos. Of course it's all unnecessary eye-candy ... in
all three cases, but that is the point, after all.
I'm just going by experience of previous releases, and beta reports
from bloggers. Personally I don't care. I will never own or use (for
myself) Vista, or any subsequent Microsoft OS. Let's just say I'm not
as optimistic as Microsoft about Vista's capabilities or requirements.
