While up in Sonoma a few weeks ago, I was finishing off something on my laptop and our friends came into the hotel room. One of them, looking at the laptop said, “that’s beautiful. Is that Mac OS X?” (Qualifier: She is a graphic designer. What can you do?) I said, “no, that’s Windows Vista.” And she replied,” Wow. It’s really nice looking. I heard it was awful.”
I like Vista, I really do. It’s better than Xp in some ways and as good in others. I’ve yet to find something that is worse than Xp.
