So far, everything I see about Vista has me scratching my head and wondering, "why do I need that, again?"

Take this miracle of window transparency that they'll no-doubt want me to go out and buy a DX10 class video card in order to witness... why exactly do people want their windows going transparent, Microsoft?

Remind me, because whenever I see screenshots of the effect, I am stricken by what an amazingly illegible mush of poor UI design results from the various bits of icons and text blending into one another in the transparent areas.. what increase in the OS's usability is realised by this feature? What's it for? What can I do to my desktop now that I can see the horrid picture bleeding through my taskbar?

..'cause if it's meant to help me task-switch more efficiently or something, they should have just gone all-out with looting the good bits from OSX and ported over Exposé.

And while I'm at it, WTF is that sidebar monstrosity? Looks like the retarded step-child of Dock meets Dashboard. Blech.

I'm not even angry. I'm being so sincere right now, even though you broke my heart and killed me.
