Vista contains far better technology than any windows OS before it, applications including development tools perform far better on it than an identical computer running XP which I verified personally, and any Windows developer who has avoided it up to this point and not learned to work with it properly is a fool.

The debate is over, let it go people and ask yourself if you are a true professional Windows developer or a ranting child who would be better off shambling over to Linux and taking your mindless hatred to SlashDot instead.
