Can someone please explain Windows Vista?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
There is a lot of talk and rumors about Windows Vista and how much it will suck, but I realize that I have seen no hard data proving anything substantive. Could someone who really knows what they are talking about give me a simple, concise explanation of the Windows Vista DRM provisions, how they work, and how that will affect the end-user?

go buy the most recent magasine for under $10, or read it in the store, theres like a 10 page atricle about it, giving pluses and minuses

from what i can remember, its main features are:

1) a new kernel (finally) with vastly improved security, and much increased utilization of hardware
(this is a good thing)

2) DX10 and Aero making everything pretty, Multiple Virtual Desktops (like in linux)

3) Lots of convienent doodads and widgets etc.
-Like local weather from a hotkey, displayed on your desktop

4) replaces "My documents" with User name's folderr, then My Documants, Music etc is in there,
-also adds a "My games" folder that houses all game saves and stuff with Vista ready games, and possibly XP games later on

ill think of more things later

theres really no problem with vista, it does need to have some bugs worked out but the enhanced security seems to be working extrordinary- I havent seen anyone complain about virus problems when using vista.
