Tux Machines (TM)-specific
It just occurred to me how alien Windows has become to my way of working. The trigger for this realization: Windows Vista Ultimate, A Hands On Diary by Barry Gerber over at Tom's Hardware Guide.
Barry was one of the fortunate few to receive an Acer Ferrari laptop preloaded with Windows Vista Ultimate from Microsoft. If the Ultimate tag still isn't enough to clue you in, it's the version of Vista that has every feature of the OS loaded in.
As a Linux bigot, it's in my interest to see what the competition is doing. As it is highly unlikely that I will ever get my hands on a similar rig, I can only experience Vista vicariously through reviews like Barry's.
But as I read through the article, I was already thinking: "What the heck is this guy talking about?"
