Dang didn't mean to get this going. It's not just security with Microsoft that makes me look elsewhere. There are plenty of other reasons.

Heck it might be I've just used them so long, that I'm looking for something new and exciting. I do always seem to stay with them though.

Doh! Sounds like my marriage.

Nope, why do you think Microsoft ditched a planned OS that would supposedly be the new XP and decided to screw it and work on Vista?
To avoid the flaws XP had.

And wheres your if I may ask?

Vista has DX10, XP has DX9, Vista has Aero, XP does not have Aero, Vista has indexed search features, XP does not.

I can go on and on, Vista is not a face lift of XP.

None of that necessarily means the OS was built from the ground up...

Compiz-Fusion (comparable to aero) can be installed at any time. A GUI does not mean an OS was rebuilt completely.

Beagle (comparable to windows search) can be installed at anytime. Search indexing does not mean an OS was rebuilt completely.

I don't know about DX, though; I think that takes more system work. But that doesn't mean the OS was rebuilt completely.

Vista isn't build from ground.
But calling it facelift is like saying XP has nothing new over NT3.
Because thats the source where both kernels come from.

Vista has seen some changes to the Kernal but more to the inner circles of the OS around the Kernal.
And MS didn't break up the hole thing.
The Interfaces for applications stood the same only the way the OS works out a request inside changed.

Aero and Search are Services.
The belong to the application level and have nothing to do with the OS architecture.
[EDIT]
It is just that we nowerdays believe that some applications be part of the OS.
The Explorer is not a part of Windows, it's an application - only Microsoft is shipping it for free.
[/EDIT]
While DX10 is part of the OS, not the Kernal but in a layer close to it...



Whether get some informations about OS architecture or stop telling nonsense

And so the cycle of people saying other OSs are more secure when they just aren't attacked as often continues.

Yes, and I think it's silly. None of us could possibly know for sure. It's not like an OS is a tangible object that you can hold in your hand and count the holes and imperfections. The imperfections are only known after you play Marco-Polo with them.

You can't just look at an OS and count its flaws.
