The launch of Windows Vista is drawing near, so you might be wondering if it is worthy of your hard earned dollars. Ask someone to tell you about Vista, and they’ll likely tell you that it is more secure than XP and has much nicer eye candy. That’s all well and good, but what you really want to hear is that Vista has dynamic multi-dimensional scrolling. No really, that’s what you want to hear. Long Zheng has an awesome animation that compares the scrolling experience in XP with the new experience in Vista (if you’re too lazy to look, essentially Vista does horizontal scrolling for you automagically).
I can’t say it better than Long:
Is it a feature? No. Is it worth mentioning? No. Is it a selling point? No.
Does it deliver a great experience? Yes.
Assuming Vista contains many more of these little gems, you’ll want to spend your money on the new operating system.
