Windows Vista Annoyances

heroofhyr Re:My top annoyance with Vista? It ain't in the OS (399 comments)

It took them +-5 years to rewrite the whole OS and it's only an incremental advance over the last release? I've never worked at a software company where something like that wouldn't get a few teams fired. At least if they argued that the changes were necessary to make future versions more stable, secure, and easier to add new functionality to then I could see it as a justification for only incremental advancement. But they're writing a new version of Windows for the next release too (MinWin or WinMin or whatever their codename for the kernel is--personally I don't know why they don't just call it DarWin and be honest for once about who they've been copying on-and-off for the past 20 years).

heroofhyr writes "CNN is reporting here that the Cobb County Board of Education in Georgia has given up their 4-year struggle to have a sticker inside of all high school biology textbooks with the warning:
"This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully and critically considered."
The sticker was put in the books in 2002 at the behest of a group of angry parents who felt it excluded other theories such as the Biblical Creation from being discussed in their children's biology classes."
