    does that means that every other edition of windows was incomplete?
    in a way, yes. which edition you buy depends on what you want out of the OS. Microsoft is trying to cater different price points for various segments of the market. not exactly the most elegant of solutions but it works for them over the years.

    No wonder Gates is so rich.

    Slowly put function by function into your product, each time claiming to be best update.

    This is a true story. This happened when it was first launched. I was browsing in the shops when I saw the price of the ultimate version. I said to myself 'Wow! That's blardy expensive man!!!' Then I saw the tag line - 'The Wow starts now' Had a damn good laugh.

    That means he's a damn good CEO. At the end of the day, he's doing the most important thing - getting people to go all out to pay the money.

    First : NO

    Second : YES YOU DO! Ever heard of Linux? Ever heard of Apple? Ever heard of BE OS? Linux by itself has dozens of different varities for you to choose from; even more than the number of versions of Vista available (and that's saying there's a lot! LOL )

    Lots of pro reviewers mention that other than the cosmetics, there's not much else to vista. They'd rather stick to xp or .....

    hence it means it is not faster, easier, less buggy, and more compatible with more 3rd parties....?

    i was looking forward to checking out the new Windows Flip and Windows Flip 3D functions, wondering if they are any better than Mac's Expose.

    wasn't that impressed after playing around with Vista during the IT show. still find that Mac OS have a more elegant feel to it. if i ever use Vista, somehow i feel i would rather turn off all the distracting effects, to save on memory usage. that's what i did with my XP.
