Vista...is that really it?

We only did the walk through on ZDNet but it was a big disappointment. It's true the new 3D looking icons are cool but that can't be it right?!

There is better integration for pictures, audio and video but it doesn't even catch up to what you have on OS X today so it's just more me too stuff.

Improved integrated security is probably the only thing that we nodded at; thinking that customers will very likely want these features and security is often enough of a reason to upgrade to a new software release, at least in the corporate world.

On the whole disappointed but not surprised. Corporates hooked on Windows will upgrade and the rest of the world will probably yawn.

We will take the Beta later and play some more but the walk through was all that could be managed today.
