I went to a talk about Microsoft's Vista a little while ago and from what I remember of the presentation, some highlights of the security impact of Vista:
They also left out some easy to achieve things that would make the world a lot safer. E.g. IE7 doesn't make it any harder to see a https site with a bad ssl certificate. Just pressing next still accepts the bad cert and shuts up about it. This makes man in the middle attacks way too easy.
I'm worried about the confidence they have this will be enough to change the tide. And most of all, I'm worried about the added complexity, as complexity creates more (security) bugs in my experience.
So: make up your own mind and let us know in the poll.
