The benchmarks are interesting, and I'll concede the point for the time being. However, that being said, in my experience multitasking has been far superior on Vista and with select applications. In my opinion, giving developers a chance to take advantage of Vista's capabilities will in turn help. Again, I could be wrong and can only speak from my experience, so I won't proceed with this point any further.
