Recently I acquired a beta of Vista! I looked on the small print and it did not seem to say not to share any details, but if I am not meant to then please let me know. I have to say it looks very cool, better than a Mac I would say. When it comes to the install and update it works well. The hard ware is recognised and seems fine though one or two older pieces of hard ware may be a problem. I am still getting my head round it but wondered if anyone else out there has been using it.
