    Re: Windows Xp vs Windows Vista

    It's looking very nice in places- though is it just me or does the Explorer window look too "cluttered"? I mean, I love the depth that I can go to using something like Konqueror in KDE as a file browser, but Windows Explorer has traditionally been a little less functional than other file system browsing mechanism--I wonder how long term Windows users will fare with the detail that seems to be there now?

    Thanks for the link Tosca.

    There is a Black Marble event (advertised by Microsoft) for FREE on Vista for managers, I am off to that. Its being held in Bradford - http://www.blackmarble.co.uk/Events/May2006.aspx Its free, so I am off to that, may pickup something useful, and its only 1/2 day and its free and has a bunfight as well, so what can you loose!

    Re: Windows Xp vs Windows Vista

    Is it me, or does the new start menu (or whatever it's been renamed to these days) have the icon / font look of anything KDE based?

    If anything, my theory (if I'm right about the above) is that it'll make Linux much more approachable to novice users as a result..

    Quite. I still haven't been given a convincing reason to upgrade to Vista.

    I like the Breadcrumb Bar.

    And I like upgrading.

    Apparently you can do a filetype filter in WinExplorer now (*.zip for example to show only ZIP files), which is only an idea me and some friends discuess all of 7 years ago

    You've been able to do that in Gnome/KDE for the past 4 years.
