Vista, Freeze Dried

A new feature in the upcoming version of the Windows Operating System will be Freeze Dry and will "maintain application states and unsaved documents even when patches are automatically applied and PCs are rebooted" (ZDNet Australia via Ed Bott). This will allow automatic patch roll-out to go much more smoothly and be more widely accepted.

It is good that MS is including this functionality in Vista - I wonder if they'll roll out an update for XP that would include this feature. That will probably depend on how exactly they implemented Freeze Dry and how much coding it would take to get it to work under XP's framework.
