This came out last week, but it's still interesting enough to take a peek at. You're looking at a sample of Windows Media Center Edition on Visita. MS is taking the whole "translucent bezel" idea to its obvious conclusion: "translucent everything." Sure, you can do it, guys, but SHOULD you do it.

I played a bit more with Vista last week and saw some of the good and bad sides of the new OS. Graphically, OSX wins hands down. In terms of productivity, however, IE 7 and Office 12 are looking pretty hot. I'm not going to switch back any time soon, but it's nice to know I have a choice.
