Amazing new features of Windows Vista

In the first broad demonstration of Windows Vista for consumers, Gates showed how Microsoft’s next-generation operating system, due later this year, will offer customers powerful new advances in security, search capability and digital entertainment.

    As an MS insider, I know what's potting below-board, but it was really interesting to see the similarities either way!

  5. As a huge Mac fan I have to admit Vista doesn't really excite me a great deal. I'm curious but there is no way Bill is going to get me to migrate back to windows after years of stable and successful times on my Mac…
