Linux is probably the best OS in my opinion.

I don't think that is "100 Reasons."
But rather I think that will be one of the 5 Reasons one should hate Vista!
Oh, wait.... I am using one.

I merged the two parts back to one.

51. Question here: Is all games required to make a link/shortcut into this Games folder/directory thing? If not, it doesn't make them easier to find on the PC.
52. No argument here, this might be good.
53. Use a combination of Skype/Windows Live Messenger/Google Docs and Spreadsheets to collaborate with your co-workers, family members and etc. This ensures that you can communicate by talking and chatting, and also that it is free and online.
54. With all your repetition about Windows Media Center, I think that your main focus of Windows Vista is to make the PC into a DVD/media player and nothing else.
55. Because there are 3rd-party programs that do this and are compatible with systems as old as Windows 98, we are now including it with Windows Vista.
56. Does Internet Explorer 7 support the printing CSS selectors?
57. Most computer manufacturers already include some sort of this software with their DVD burners.
58. Did you know that their is something called an iPod, or even the Zune that you can carry in your pocket and rock out it any room, outside, or almost anywhere?
59. Ever heard of Microsoft PowerPoint 2000? I think your company invented that, and it is capable of what you describe there.
61. So why do you sell Windows Live OneCare?
62. Preloading files into my memory? What if you preload a file that I don't need? What if it is a virus that you are preloading? Is that going to "SuperFetch" anything except damaged files and etc?
63. No argument there.
64. What kind of home user has a smart card?
65. Please explain further as how you can "receive" faxes without a fax number. Also, scanning and emailing is sufficient for most users.
66. How much space is that going to take up? With all my videos, music, documents, pictures and files that I work on, we would probably need to add a second or third hard drive every month or so to hold the shadow copies.
67. Because e-mail is your lifeline? No, email isn't one of our basic needs. Food, water, oxygen, shelter, energy and interaction with others are. And Mozilla Thunderbird, among with other email clients, already offer phishing protection, spam filters and a lot more (and it is compatible with older versions of Windows).
68. Are you saying that Windows Calendar will replace an essential part of Windows Live Events (the product you just launched), Facebook, Google Calendar and other calendar/event-related applications? I don't think so.
69. Higher quality will require more time. Also, I think they use more energy and colour than draft/normal quality printouts, so that doesn't cut environmental impacts by a lot actually.
70. I think that Windows 98 has Sleep. And most BIOS systems allow you to control Power Management. Also, Hibernate is available in many versions of Windows I think.
71. Just use Recent Documents and organize your files properly and you won't need to use this feature that creates this huge index on your hard drive.
72. You can use iGoogle+Google Reader, my Yahoo!, my MSN or any other RSS-compatible software/browser (Firefox, Opera, Thunderbird) to enjoy more advanced features, better notifications and/or integrated experience with what you should be using to surf the Internet.
73. Isn't everyone already doing this without Windows Vista?
74. How about adding your own mp3 files and then changing your speaker's device equalizer to customize your listening experience?
75 and 76. Picasa can already do this.
77. We use the software that comes with our cameras to import pictures. Also, Windows Explorer can do that just fine.
78 and 79. iPod and iTunes, born to be together.
80, 81 and 82. Again with the Windows Media Center? You also need a TV Tuner for TV to work, and few people have that.
83. No argument there. Need to find out more about it.
84. Seriously, enough repetition about Windows Media Center?!?
85. Absolutely no argument there. Now this is a really cool feature, if it means transforming the entire operating system into a whole different language. *looks at footnote* Windows Vista Enterprise and Ultimate ONLY?! WTF?
86. Ok, that is just creative writing. Combining Windows Media Center and Windows Backup in 1 point altogether.
87. Didn't I see this somewhere in the beginning? I'm guessing that a few different people wrote this list, and they didn't share their ideas on what to put on, so they came up with duplicate ideas that they included.
88. With expensive hardware, you can finally play games on Vista!
89. Is Windows going to make your Internet faster? No, paying for high-speed does.
90. And how are we supposed to view the stuff on the monitor if the PC isn't booted up?
92. Could everyone please press PrintScreen and CTRL+V it into Paint? Then save it and send it with IM, emails, etc. Already available in Windows 98 or even older.
93. Are those monitors really expensive?
94. So are wireless networks on Windows XP insecure?
95. Use Windows Briefcase, and it will synchronize your files just as good as this new feature.
96. Just use Remote Desktop, if there is another person at the office to click OK or whatever on the remote computer.
97. Because we can already do this with our devices in Windows 2000, let's call it a new and exciting feature in Windows Fax and Scan.
98. My school uses Windows XP and we already do that, so I wouldn't call it a new and exciting "speechless" feature.
99. Windows Live Messenger with Sharing Folders already does this. And the Network controls in Windows 98 already allow read-only and write access respectively.
100. Because we have this now, all IT department staff can be unemployed now because we don't need them to fix network problems anymore. NOT!
Real article's name: 100 reasons why everyone's so speechless: Because almost all these features are already available in Windows XP, some with the use of third-party software.
So yeah, the cool features weren't even introduced, and way too much repetition in the article. How boring is Windows Vista anyways?
