But in the case of Vista they unnecessarily changed their winning formulae. The whole layout of windows was actually very good even if it was hampered by its poor OS. If Vista didn't change the classic menu and the classic layout and just made things more glossy plus the features, they wouldn't be in this mess.
Vista isn't slower than XP Pro on my 4 year old machine.
Window 7 Pre-beta does run faster than Vista on my machine though.
I like the new look and the only thing i didn't like was the Control panel layout.
You can change that and I did.
