Vista Heralds Bold New Era in Solitaire

Phil Boisenbottom at Ridiculopathy offers a glowing review of Microsoft’s new solitaire game:

With the launch of their newest solitaire engine, Vista, Microsoft hopes to bring the art of single player card games to a whole new level. Gone is the flat green background, replaced by a seductive green-to-dark-green gradient. The “play” and “quit” buttons are pleasantly shiny like beads of glass, softly inviting you to click them. Even the diamonds, hearts, spades, and clubs all have a sexy updated look. After poking around Vista for a few hours, it’s difficult to imagine stacking sequential cards of alternating suits with anything less.

Finally, someone who has his priorities straight.
