My point is every time I read something about Vista, it becomes less of an Operating System, and more of an antivirus program. An antivirus program that costs $400.

I would almost agree with you but at this point any stories about Vista I take as speculation. There have been so many reworks and scraps of that operating system that there is no telling what the final result will be whenever the public gets to see it. You are gonna see alot of articles blasting it and some praising it, much like any other technological product. We will just have to wait and see, but I think when it is finally released it is going to be one slick operating system. Gates knows what he is up against and he won't let his software teams fail.

Did you know that BIll Gates' net worth has dropped $40 billion since 1999.

And that means what? His net worth has nothing to do with what type of operating system Vista will be. If you can afford to lose $40 billion and still be filthy rich I think you are doing just fine.

"And that means what?"

In my opinion, the second a single Windows computer gets a virus, his software teams have failed already. It's a disgrace that the largest software company in the world can't make the largest operating system in the world virus-proof, or at least less virus-prone. Apple did it. Why can't Microsoft?

Because they want to give you an alternative to perfect, boring world of OS X where nothing (apart from what you are doing) happens. Never felt that shot of adrenalin while fighting against all those worms, viruses and unpredicted system behaviour ?

Anyway have you seen those macTV videocasts - The 'Real' Windows Vista ? They explain everything

I'm not saying that Vista is going to be another piece of crap, but it is definitely not going to be revolutionary os. And I'm almost sure it's not going to be immune to viruses and stuff like that. The answer is simple, too many people use Microsoft's products so there is much more maniacs creating all that destructive software and much more newbies running that kind of things (hoping for free porn etc.).

porn does drive technology... it's credited towards the move to DVD

That is one of the most ridiculous things people always tell me when I talk about Windows and viruses. Believe me, plenty of people have tried (and failed) to make a virus for OS X.

Not just OSX, but Linux and Unix as well.
