Vista - is it a discontinous innovation?

Vista is coming... whether you like it or not. It's that simple. This techrepublic
article chronicles 10 reasons why you should or maybe should not upgrade to Vista. Granted that Vista will require a significant boost in your hardware and processor speed, it will still present an opportunity for all of us to evaluate how far Microsoft is catching up with the ever growing needs of the average computer user. The technology adoption lifecycle describes how communities respond to discontinuous innovations. A discontinuous innovation is a new product that requires the end user to dramatically change their past behavior to gain new benefits. Ultimately, is Vista innovative in any way? Any comments?
