    I am using the Beta 2 of Windows Vista which will replace XP.

    It is ok but it looks like an imitation of OS X. It does about 90% about 76% as good.

    Of course it is still beta so we will see if it gets better.

    No, you got it backwards. The copying of Apple only intenstified after Win3.1.

    Remember the joke that was going around in August 1995? The one about
    Win95 = Mac89?

    Of course, the real joke was Windows 95 (No more General Protection Fault!). M$ was right of course, the GPF went away and was replaced with the BSOD. Or, in some cases on my network (was a Network Admin at the time), the BSODWMS (Black Screen of Death with mouse support).

    And of course, before that they promised to rid us of the "Unrecoverable Application Error", which was renamed "General Protection Fault".
