Windows 7 is around the corner which should resolve Vista issues as it'll have dual mode compatability. I know what you mean though as I buy for and manage a large network and I avoid Vista because it's not network friendly as it cannot handle pre-existing XP Pro roaming profiles (among other issues) unless I start from scratch and buy all new servers and rebuild hundreds of profiles and no way most budgets can and available time handle that proposition with a Live Network of 14 Servers unless one's network is starting from point A with Vista. Windows 7 should finally fill that gap in the near future.
I'd look at CES in Jan for improvements in the Tech area interface (also CEDIA next month) but understand HDMI and wireless can have it's limits since current HDMI has no error correction built-in - should collisions occur and they will, it can lead to audio and picture dropouts. Many of the interfaces used with one's HT must have their specs improved to have that area come to market - an area that the TV builders have very little control over directly often they have to wait for the interfaces to evolve and mature.
One of next years biggest improvements should be expansion of Tru2Way interface with cable cards without using cable boxes and Samsung is a huge partner in Tru2Way. It's being tested in different markets around the country presently - one way cable cards failed because the cable providers could not make any money off them but in this case a two way opens up unlimited Pay services the original lacked for Cable companies to promote and most were pathetically apathetic at supporting since they weren't making money off it which is the American way.
Often Samsung has tested their innovations in their home market in S Korea before they deal it out in Europe and N. America et al. It is amazing how these CR's keep jumping on these panels and I'd love to see if the PQ and shadow details truly result in improved Picture if it's truly 7 million to one.
