Even though I am quite at home on the command line and tend to use it quite a bit I am still an eye candy junkie. I suppose it is from my windows background but still I can't help it. If I am going to stare at a screen all day it may as well look pretty. I had heard all the hype about the new windows vista and its fantastic new eye candy enhancements that just makes your time at the computer so pleasing you won't want to leave it. I was mildly interested in seeing what they have done but I wasn't going to immediately rush out and buy a copy.
