See Windows Vista Site Explains Features


Seattle-based Worktank created the See Windows Vista site for Microsoft to illustrate how companies are using Vista to develop applications. The site is full of videos and is hosted by Tom Skerritt (where's he been lately?). It's pretty good. Does the job and seems to make good use of video.

Am i the only one seeing too much compression on that window logo?? I don't think its too much to ask that a logo be displayed crisply on an official site. ESPESSIALLY if its done in flash!

Does anyone get the feeling that this site is contentless, or at least very generic. Using testimonials is fine, but they don't clearly explain HOW these companies are using Vista to do what they are doing. Plus it isn't apparent how any of their technology is beyond what XP or even windows 98 is capable off.

I am not a Microsoft hater, but them throwing their name around in these testimonials is akin to saying that Internet Explorer is a wonderful tool in building creative websites.

An innovative third party program does not an innovating OS make.

I agree Nik. If anything, this site shows how far MM/Adobe has come with Flash.

I can tell you where Tom Skerrit's been... he's been doing spots for the Kansas University Medical Center.

Agree with above...

My opinion it already seems dated. Is it a late 80s early 90s work and safety corporate video they are trying to emulate.

PS using a windows xp system with a LAN internet connection on explorer and it still didnt flow freely. shouldnt it at least work properly...thoughts echoed by every ms user maybe!

This one looked dated out of the box, and it really doesn't have any thing new. As for the testimonials, why were they there.

I aggree with the point made but the site isn't about vista or microsoft or browsers. its about fast internet connections, remote apps and DRM.
