From the article
We know we titled this piece “Why Windows Vista Won’t Suck” and that’s a big statement to make. To be honest, we don’t know that it’s going to be great just yet. The OS is still very much in beta, and if previous Microsoft operating systems are any indication, a whole lot of things come together in the last few months. As such, we certainly can’t recommend you set aside some upgrade money right now.
There are lots of great features in Vista that get us excited. We love the way the new search features work, the new UI and navigation, and the changes that remove a lot of the little annoyances we’ve lived with in Windows for ages. Not every new feature is a slam dunk, but taken as a whole, it’s a giant improvement to the way we use our PCs.
I’ll no doubt upgrade my XP to Vista. As a software developer, it’s important for me to have the latest operating system to ensure my software are compatible with this the new OS.
