It's called Beryl.

I too noticed that some apps launched much quicker on Vista than they did on XP. Office 2007 was one of those apps and loaded about 4 times as quickly (2 second vs. 8 seconds). My own app, StencylWorks also made a surprising gain too by being able to load up cold in half the time it took in XP. (1 second vs. 2 seconds)

Tried to collect my email from my hotmail account today.........I was certainly struck by the "Wow!" ("M$ are such a bunch of f$%^tards") factor. 

Apparently M$ felt that with a new operating system, they needed to have a new email client.....
So, gone is Outlook Express (apparently forever), and replaced with "Windows Mail".

According to the blurb "Windows Mail" has a whole host of new features..... unfortunately none of them happen to be the feature critical to collection of hotmail - HTTP support!
I bet that 99% of Outlook Express users used it solely for collecting their hotmail - for the replacement to not support this vital feature seems completely insane!!!?!??!

Oh well, time to migrate to Thunderbird.
While I'm at it I suppose I might as well dump IE and go back to Firefox.... by their own incompetence M$ lose ownership of another users browser.

Incidentally, I found a 100% reproducible crash bug that was in Outlook Express (under XP),
and is now present in Vistas "Windows Mail". So much for it being a "new product"

1) Having never before launched "Windows Mail" or Outlook Express, click a mail link in IE.
2) "Windows Mail" / Outlook Express will launch into the "Create an Account" dialog sequence.
3) Without closing the dialog, launch a new seperate instance of "Windows Mail" / Outlook Express from the start menu shortcut.  (It will also launch into the "Create an Account" dialog sequence.)
4) go back to the dialog that was triggered by step 1).
5) Click cancel, and then confirm that you want to exit without creating an account.
6) Watch and laugh as the Mail instance spawned in step 3) crashes with a null pointer Cheesy

Yup yup yup...

Thunderbird was reported deleting whole email-archives when it stumbled upon non-unique email-IDs from the mail-server.
