Unfortunately, the quips about Vista have a ring of truth to them. It looks nice, but it takes twice as long to start up as XP, runs noticably slower, needs twice as much memory, and doesn't seem to do anything extra. What a rip off. No doubt it takes 300m and a name change to get people to forget that. I've been lied to by Msoft so many times that I have zero sympathy for them now. Still, looking at those adverts, I'm too old, and just not arty enough to own a mac!
