Vista's Killer Features

    I noted in another thread how funny it was that everyone's killer feature was different in terms of both the actual functionality and the scale of the feature.  So for me, although maybe killer might be over-egging it a little, RDC is going to be a *very* important feature for me in Longhorn Server (and apparently 2003r2) at least for this contract (after which I prob won't be using Windows anyway).

    What's your killer feature, either present, or not,  in Vista or Longhorn server. WinFS is no longer a valid answer [C]

    Well I take "killer feature" to be the feature that kills my desire for the product, and you all know what that one is Smiley

    Haha ... as funny as a hole in the head!

    ReadyBoost ... this is a great idea! ... if a product did this for XP now, I would buy it. I have loads of 1Gb or 512Mb USB drives from different things, I could put them to really good use with my spare USB ports.

    Is there one??

    I settled on Windows-2003 for my desktop some time ago (probably in 2003, I guess) and, unfortunately, I'm yet to see anything in Vista that will cause me to rethink that choice.

    ROFL.

    C'est exact ! Et je pense que c’est pour ça que l’on est incapable de comprendre.

    If you know C# you basically know Java... if you know .net  you know mono.

    Probably the improved security. Maybe that ReadyBoost thing.

    I'd like to to see more flashy apps, but MS isn't exactly leading the charge on this.

    Started learning .NET, and that seems pretty good so far, but doesn't need Vista.

    Guys, stop talking about his hair. And I don't think he'll agree to that.

    Oh, and I'm looking forward to Infocard.

    Ah, Java, the great Free/Open Source Language.  You keep telling yourself that.

    Not even an ISO standard.


    Neither is C#, which is standardised by ECMA instead. (The same ECMA behind ECMAScript, aka JavaScript)
