Vista gaming will be 10 to 15 per cent slower than XP

I'm certain there are scenarios with poorer performance right now, but
these are all beta drivers. Wait for the final versions.

Wait for WinFS...

Wait for SOA...

Wait for... the wonderful features:

Like the EULA that's posted at the 90th minute

Digital 'Rights' 'Management' (or Restrictions Mess)

I'm still waiting. But what for...? Ha! SUSE 10.2. Just like SLED 10, only
for free... and more cutting-edge.
