    Microsoft Update Windows Vista Homepage


    After a brief demo at the on-going CES conference in Las Vegas, Microsoft have launched a re-vamped version of the website for Windows Vista.

    The slick new look makes a break from the often bland Microsoft product pages, and moves towards the Glass theme expected in Vista. Perhaps of most significance is that the pages underlying code is put together with more 'modern' html code (div tags, for example, rather than tables). Also of note is the RSS feed, added, no doubt, after cajoling from a certain Microsoft blogger.

    The website hosts a fairly detailed break down of some of the major features announced to date, and also some less well publicised ones; Windows Calendar, for example, is covered on their 'for the home' page.

    It's launch marks the start of what will be one of Microsoft's most important years. Windows Vista, expected in the latter half of this year, has much riding on a successful launch and quick adoption.

    No **** really? I vote for this as understatement of the year!


    I cant wait for a glass theme for my XP x64, I sure dont plan on upgrading right away. I do like the cool looking and resource hogging visualizations of Vista.

    the ram usage in vista is pretty neat really.. it does use alot but when you open alot of things that uses it also..Vista backs off on the usage or "gives rope slack" to the other apps. So it really uses less than what XP uses from what I can see and I've opened alot of crap at once to test this too!

    I have installed Vista home Prem my new PVR system and have to say that I have only crashed 1-2 times per day. I think I have a heat problem.
