    In Vista, personally I save about 3 seconds each time when I use start menu to find a program. That alone saves me about 6 hours a year (avg of 20 times a day). And I could earn twice the price of Vista in that 6 hours

    Thank you very much. Keep up the good work

    Is there a joke in there about the EC and Microsoft commission?  😉 This is a worldwide competition!

    I sent in my entry! I actually use WMP’s Quiet Mode and Vista’s Loudness Equalization to listen to music and watch videos without disturbing others when volume suddenly jumps between songs or scenes of a TV show. Really nice features I wish I had before.

    I hope that USB key is fast enough for ReadyBoost! My cheap PNY stick I got from Staples is too slow.

    I love the new Media Center. The User Interface is very simple to use even for my 5 year old daughter. However, why does it take so long to load! (2.8ghz processor & 1.5gb of Ram).
