Default Re: Vista used in less than 1% of PCs

I'm not even waiting for SP1, I'm waiting for SP2. SP1 will fix stuff, but there's even more things that need to be fixed.

i wouldn't say that jenox. as a matter a fact i would say windows is more anti-virus than unix is. the only reason unix doesn't get virus's anymore is because no 1 is using unix. It's 50 years old. if hackers and virus's were made for unix then unix would go down the drain real fast, imo.

I think it's just that in general, people who know enough about computers to use a Unix based OS also know enough to protect their computers from viruses.

I bet it'll be cool, and revolutionary, but we're all so used to the current Windows interface, I hope they don't completely throw it away...

Yeah that's why I said it's a lame idea, because MS is asking for every Windows user to convert to a new UI and start from almost scratch. Older folk are BARELY growing accustomed to Windows XP/Vista, this "Vienna" would completely be a step back in making people accustomed to PCs.
