A (Much) Closer Look At Windows Vista
If you're curious about how some of the advertised features in Windows Vista work under the hood--or you'd just like to see what kind of reading I do for fun on the job--have a look at the first installment of Ars Technica's three-part Vista review.
This lengthy piece goes into such details as:
* Why Mac OS X and Windows Vista can easily display live thumbnail previews of open windows, while XP can't;
* What Vista's graphics layer does to make new software more accessible to people with limited vision;
* How far Vista will go to stop unauthorized use of "protected" audio or video content.
The review isn't for everyone--if you're not sure whether to pronounce "API" as an abbreviation or an acronym, it may completely baffle you--but if my own Vista write-up left you wanting more detail, give it a look.
