Windows Vista introduces a breakthrough user experience and is designed to help you feel confident in your ability to view, find, and organize information and to control your computing experience.
The visual sophistication of Windows Vista helps streamline your computing experience by refining common window elements so you can better focus on the content on the screen rather than on how to access it. The desktop experience is more informative, intuitive, and helpful. And new tools bring better clarity to the information on your computer, so you can see what your files contain without opening them, find applications and files instantly, navigate efficiently among open windows, and use wizards and dialog boxes more confidently.

Should you choose another operating system, you should better try Free Windows. The distribution disk is rather cheap (I dont remember exactly, but approx. 22-25 $), software is free. http://free-windows.com

I began using the alpha of this in December 2008 and thought I'd found heaven for Vista. The great experience continued thru the betas, but then I installed this "final release." And since then, I've seen more BSODs over the past couple of weeks than I saw across years of XP and even the crappy old Vista.
Another perfect example of Microsoft taking 2 steps forward and 3 steps backwards. Having before seen it so few times, I honestly had little idea what the BSOD was until installing this piece of crap. I now know it well. Oh, and there have also been 3 "hardware failure" shutdowns since installing this so-called final release. Bottom line: this release is infinitely less stable than the alphas & betas of it over the past several month.
User beware. I do not recommend this download.
I installed the Vista SP1 Beta late 2007 and when the official roll out came around, Windows update failed to recognize my copy of Vista and I ended up doing I full reinstall. It took me a month to get it back in order.
My Vista runs fine now, Photoshop is snappy and all my drivers work fine. It's just like Microsoft intended it to be.
It's not broke, so I'm not going to try to improve it with a service pack that may do more harm than good. I will take the update when it shows up as the final version.
