Sometimes its the little things in a new operating system and associated "tools" that really count. Take for example, the new version of Outlook Express in Windows Vista called "Windows Mail". I'm in and out of the Microsoft public and beta newsgroups twenty or thirty times a day, posting questions and answers. Keeping track of which messages were "mine" in Outlook Express was a pain. In Windows Mail's newsgroup reader, every time I post a new thread it displays in "Red" giving me a quick way to navigate to messages I've sent. It even knows I'm a Microsoft MVP and displays a little MVP logo next to my (nospam) email address.
