See Windows Vista demo site

Actor Tom Skerritt guides you through the world of Windows Vista in this interactive demo site. See Windows Vista is split into four sections: Connecting with people, managing the big picture, turning information into action, and expanding your possibilities. Each section is composed of 4-6 video clips that detail how a Microsoft partner or customer is taking advantage of Windows Vista, and some of them actually apply to regular users. The site seems to be geared more toward the professional and someone who wants to take advantage of Vista for everything they do. Need to find out how good that new jacket you plan to buy is on the slopes? There’s a tool for that which shows videos.

The site is extremely light on substance, though Tom does do some annoying things when you don’t click on a video fast enough. You might remember him as the guy everyone hates from the movie Contact. He changes into a flight suit saying “these [clips] are the best of the best” and he holds up a tablet PC that he writes “click->” on. Unfortunately he can’t recite lines from plays well; he recites “to click or not to click, that is the question” and I just don’t feel his energy. When he isn’t talking he stands there as his smile fades and grows, leaving an unsettling feeling in the pit of my stomach.
