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.
