Windows Vista is upon us, and there are plenty of complaints from those who suggest that the hand-holding and lack of advanced functionality make this more like My First Operating system. But, says Chris Caines, haven't we brought this on ourselves?
"One of the first things I've noticed in Vista is the 'dumbing down' of almost every area of the operating system. Even simple changes like removing the "My" prefix on everything so that it's just 'Pictures' or 'Computer' help overcome that psychological barrier for people. You just KNOW more than one person has said "Well, what if it's not MY pictures on there, but some I got from someone else?"
