This should have been the next service pack to vista...

anything is better then vista.. BTW,, you can download the beta and find out for yourself. To my understanding, its gonna have less problems then vista, and their is gonna be alot of things that it does for you like finding updates for your games sorta like how xbox live and psn has firmware updats, and sets them up automatically. Stuff like that. The only problem I have with this is that I bet that they are gonna sell it for $300 bucks or more.
