There are some improvements in Vista UI-wise (within the suffocating
confines of WIMPshit). But unfortunately it has also falling victim
to the industry-wide trend of anti-aliasing fascism. XP was the last
OS with good-looking fonts: in Vista you can't disable them completely
(at least not easily), fontconfit/Xft are well-known to be AA/XML-fascist,
it being practically impossible to configure to get decent fonts, 
especially if you don't have root access. OS X also AFAIK needs special
hacky extensions to disable blurring and still afaik doesn't support 
hinting, so the fonts rasterise poorly.

Macs are too much like Gnome. Between Mac/Gnome and Windows/KDE,
I'll take the latter.
