Vista is a dozen times worse – at least in beta 2. Along with a new frenzy for pop-to-front OK dialogs there are now numerous full-screen-focus-stealing alerts too.
Windows Vista may have the ability to multi-task, but its users don't get any such luxury =(
This will, no doubt, be the new mechanism of choice for people to screw with your Windows experience.
Its very pretty… There are some cool seeming changes. But I'm going to say no to this new Prince of Focus (theft).
