What are the advantages to Vista? Is it any easier to use or more powerful?
My top nine features of Vista:
1. Start search (no need for sub-menus)
2. Search in any window, including Control Panel
3. Explorer enhancements: better group headings, better column options, new filters
4. Breadcrumbs for navigating folders
5. Favorite Links as customizable shortcuts
6. Expanded explorer options in any file dialog
7. Checkboxes to select files
8. Snipping Tool for screen captures
9. Windows Photo Gallery (available as Photo Live Gallery to XP users)
