Windows Aero and Windows Flip
Windows Vista Business has an elegant new user interface, named Windows Aero, which is designed to deliver new levels of efficiency for any business user. This new interface makes it easy to navigate through the operating system and from application to application. For instance, Windows Aero helps you juggle multiple tasks at once by providing a three-dimensional, real-time, animated view of all your open applications and documents.
In addition, Windows Vista provides two entirely new features to manage windows: Windows Flip and Windows Flip 3D. Flip allows you to flip through open windows, providing a live thumbnail of each window, rather than just a generic icon and file name. With Flip 3D, you can use the scroll wheel on your mouse to flip through open windows in a stack, and quickly locate and select the one you want to work with.
With Windows Vista, you no longer have to remember where you store every file. Instead, to find a file, you need to only remember something about it, such as a word contained within a document. Powerful, integrated desktop search capabilities help you find just about anything on your computer quickly, without having to search for it by browsing through folders.
Windows Vista firewall and Windows Defender
Protect your data
Windows Vista Business includes new technology and tools to ensure your PCs are always up-to-date, more secure, and running smoothly. Windows Vista firewall helps protect you from hackers, viruses, and worms that try to reach your computer over the Internet. Windows Defender helps protect you against spyware and other potentially unwanted software.
Windows Meeting Space
Windows Meeting Space allows groups to instantly and securely form a shared, common session for up to 10 people in the same room. Using Windows Meeting Space you can "project" your desktop or application to other participants or to any Windows Vista compliant Network Projector, share a file with a group in a common work area, and jointly edit the file. Even if a network connection is not available, you can effectively collaborate with others, using an ad-hoc mode.
