    There is a neat future in vista where you can add a 'virtual' folder in which houses a series of files or folers in which contain text that match the keywords you searched for when creating in. Basically you can create a virtual folder called "Personal" and when clicked it brings up all the documents on your computer which are you personal docs. Watch this video to learn how to creat a virtual folder:

    Not really, the kernel is still a windows kernel. Maby the GUI looks more like MAc 0s x but thats about it.

    Not necessarily, I personally think Windows Vista even in such an early stage, is already better than OS X.

    Vista has some features that OS X at this moment doesn't have.



    Virtual folders work diffrent than Mac OS X's smart folders, smart folder's don't keep data seprate from shortcuts, while Virtual folders keep track of how you use your programs & stores databanks of your recent, commonly used programs, files, etc.



    In short their a bit more advance, & give users the ability to not lose documents so easily.
