Submission + - Vista the new Win95?

TheVelvetFlamebait writes: "Ed Bott from writes in his blog that Vista isn't the new Windows ME, rather the new Windows 95.

So does Windows Vista deserve the Me2 label? After a careful look back at my Windows history books, I see Vista heading down a different path. In fact, I'm struck by how similar Vista's path so far has been to the one that Windows 95 traveled.
He also goes on to make some small predictions based on his theory about Vista's future. What do you think? Does anyone else have any mid-to-long-term predictions for the latest Microsoft leviathan?"
