Forbes Hates Vista

  2007-02-11


My view of Vista is that its a cheap Mac OSX rip-off with no new features of any real worth.

According to a Forbes article, I’m being way too nice.

While the author seems a bit more angry than I would expect, Microsoft does seem to consider rearranging common locations, renaming programs, and altering icons between versions a “feature.”

My favorite part of the article is when the author discovers Vista’s WordPad can no long open Word documents. Obviously this is a security feature meant to protect users from the multiple unpatched vulnerabilities that have plagued Microsoft Word for months.

Unofficial patches have sprung up here, here, here, and here. 😉
