One of the sites that I have found to be invaluable lately is Paul Thurrot’s SuperSite for Windows (I noticed the web browser title bar says “SuperSit”, hehe). Two recent articles were good reads, as Paul is brutally honest about his findings. He is not a Windows biggot or a Mac hater, just honest.
The first article is about the status of Windows Vista. While he likes the product, he is downright negative about it. He gives countless examples of why it could have been much better, at least based on promises made by Bill Gates in 2003.
The other article is about Boot Camp, the Apple product that will allow dual booting of either Mac OS X or Windows XP on Mac Intel machines. It provides a good Windows user prospective. Go. Read.
