Vista Nuggets...

After my recent rant on Vista not being ready, I did want to mention a couple of great things I saw in Vista that I haven't heard about before:

  • Build-in games look like they've been re-written in WPF.  They look really nice and scale up well.
  • New Disk Manager allows for resizing partitions on the fly.  WOW.  Doesn't mean Partition Magic is dead, but for simple resizing of partitions, this is really great.
  • I really like the new User sections (better than the nasty nested c:\Document and Settings\... fiasco).

I am sure I'll think of more as we go on, but so far I am looking forward to Vista's release.
