Huh. Apparently not. He was flying below the sarcasm radar, as it were.

It's really not. In fact, Vista is... well, nothing like ME, in any way that I can think of.

Every complaint I've ever heard about Vista has been either patently false or the result of a misunderstanding on the part of the complainer, with the one exception of UAC.

Vista is not a "memory hog" (unless you're using the 3D interface, of course, and even then it's not that bad). It is not unstable. It is not slow. It is easily the most secure version of Windows ever. Its interface is demonstrably better (and if you just don't like it, you can turn just about all of it off).

UAC is fairly annoying, granted, but you can (as Phyltre points out) just turn it off.

Freedom of speech is the basic freedom of humanity. When you've lost that, you've lost everything.
