11Chris Pirillo uses Windows. He likes Windows. He works closely with Microsoft people a lot of the time, and they're the lead sponsor for his conference next month. That sure hasn't stopped him from taking on the latest Windows Vista Beta 2 though:

The first time I get into Windows, I feel like I'm bombarded with options—a balloon that tells me I'm not quite ready yet, then a window that opens up to show more options about my Windows version, and yet another window that shows me my current security settings, and then yet ANOTHER window that asks me if I want to turn on the Phishing filter when I try to "Find a program" to protect me from Malware by launching an IE session (which really oughta be preinstalled, or at least asked for during the setup process).

That's just one item out of nine printed pages (!) of issues he identified last night. Ouch. (Via Bill.)
