I read the PCA review this morning. What concerns me is too much being internet based leaving you at the mercy of the ISP working without any outages or no net access after a dispute resulting in change ISP's and having trouble with MAC codes.
As already mentioned in the report there is also the fear of security of any internet action?
vista ultimate never got the promised enhancements MS hinted at. Will MS reward the ultimate users with some of the windows 7 improvements as free downloads.
Will the additional windows add-ons available as optional downloads be free?
i paid over £400 for my vista ultimate, and it's still to this day the biggest waste of money i have spent on a pc, it sits on my spare average pc doing average things, like browsing or office stuff, aero is off as is just about everything else eye candy related. i just hope microsoft remember what an operating system is, a program launcher, if the individual user decides to install boatloads of resource hungry bloatware they have the choice.
and as usual there are signs that Microsoft has listened to feedback from the market, so we'll see. I can't help feeling that the UAC problem is still likely to rear its head however, and Microsoft saying that the Vista UAC was 'misunderstood' is a tad patronising - whose fault is it when a software feature is misunderstood?
