Here’s the intro to the main story, but unfortunately the Merc does not make its accompanying 11-point diagram of key features available electronically (you’ll have to actually buy the newspaper for that).

There are other adjoining stories in the package, including a look at the momentum of Apple’s competing OS, how to get the most out of Vista (conclusion, you may not want to bother at first; its worth upgrading to Microsoft Office 2007, though, which will work with your old XP), and devices being shipped with Vista.

VentureBeat’s VB Insight team is studying email marketing tools. Chime in here, and we’ll share the results.
