As I was trolling through the ever-so-boring world of technology news this evening, I realized that I forgot to report that I finally saw Microsoft Vista last weekend.
The experience was hugely underwhelming. It left me thinking, “gee, the greatest minds at Microsoft took six years to do that?”
We went to Staples where they dutifully had many copies of Vista out on display. A little HP laptop was running the new operating system, so we moused around a bit. It’s got more animation and it looks sorta like newer Mac OSs.
I mean is anyone actually excited about Vista? No wonder people switch to Linux. I mean $400 for a bit more animation is SO not worth it. I’m sure it will be on whatever my next computer is, but for the forseeable future, I’ll just stick with XP.
