Why do they keep doing this? Removing every advancement and reason for bothering in the first place???
With Vista ditching such great advancements as a new file system, dumping support for EFI is just one more step in making this operating system just another marketing challenge for Microsoft more then a leap forward for Windows users. Once again, users will be forced to use the 20-year-old BIOS to boot their systems instead of the next generation channel of communication between the operating system and hardware. While Apple users get to enjoy their drivers living in EFI flash memory, Vista users will continue to have hardware and software issues like crashes that have so plagued Windows for over a decade.
So again, Apple will have the truly advanced operating system and once again, Apple and Microsoft can’t play together on the school playground. Surprise, surprise.
