Windows Vista introduces a breakthrough user experience and is designed to help you feel substantially confident in your ability to view, find, and organize information and to substantially control your computing experience.

That is right. Just add a substantially to anything you see listed under their product features
Unfortunately, nobody ever reads the EULA, but according to section (A) under Limited Warranty of Windows Vista's License Agreement, the software will perform SUBSTANTIALLY as described in the Microsoft materials that you receive.

This means their product information is erroneous and misleading. For example, some of the improvements for Vista should read:

1. A PC substantially protected from viruses, worms, spyware, and other potentially unwanted software
2. A substantially safer online experience for you and your family
3. A substantial understanding of when your PC is unsafe, and the control and guidance to substantially help improve your security

The Spanish version of Linux Magazine has published a few months ago a funny comparison of this 'substantial delivery' with a mortgage agreement. It's sad to see how millions of users worldwide will accept a substantial delivery after paying a full price.

So, if you are ready for a substantially great experience, knock yourself out!

Instead, if you are one of those stupid users who REALLY relies on his computer... Get GNU/Linux !.

After all, you are not switching to Microsoft again this year, are you ?
