Vista Fiji and Vienna

Engadget has just posted an article about a few rumored Vista updates, mainly Vista R2 (entitled Fiji). It will supposedly add WinFS (a new filesytem which works off of NTFS, the current Windows standard), more sidebar usability, and a lot more stuff as well.

More interesting to me is this Vienna idea, which is the codename of M$’s rumored OS overhaul, which will completely change Windows, from the ground up (including an “all application” compatibility break, meaning none of your current programs will work on it, something I think they should do with Internet Explorer to bring it up to par with other browsers I could mention). This would mean no more Start menu/orb, no menus, toolbars, nothing. We’re talking a complete redesign.

Change is good, but too much is really, really bad. For example, this puts old Windows veterans in the place of n00bs. The methods of emulating current-style windows to support all current windows applications (and as my friends are constantly pointing out to me, almost all of the games currently on the market) will be undoubtedly slow. Not a wise move, M$…
