Buena vista?

I’ve been running Windows Vista in the excellent Parallels. I don’t have enough virtual power for the Aero interface (maybe in a new release of Parallels), but apart from that it runs well. I’m underwhelmed by Vista. I’m not sure why. There are a couple of possibilities:

  • I’ve been waiting and reading about it for such a long time, so nothing seems new or exciting.
  • It doesn’t do anything I can’t already do in Tiger or most Linux distros

Or it could be that I’ve not spent enough time with it. In some ways I’d be happier if I’d had a stronger reaction. I don’t love it, but I certainly don’t hate it. The fact that Visual Studio 2003 isn’t supported is a notable negative – but, overall, it’s OK. Right now, it feels like a missed opportunity. I’m not excited.
