Its basically a graphically enhanced version of XP with a few new features. It comes preinstalled with DirectX 10.

Its not really worth getting a new computer for Vista yet, maybe in a year or so when its got some cool features.

Vista is said to be released towards the end of 06/ start of 07.

What braindead moron would buy a whole new computer just for the OS? It's not like software is permenant or anything, it can be installed and uninstalled....

I'm getting the 64-bit version because being able to use 64-bit Windows with my 64-bit processor makes me giggle with delight.

It's not that bad right now. The newest beta build(5308) is pretty slow when starting programs and stuff but once they're running it's just fine. A decent graphics card is recommended if you want to see all the prettiness. Because without that Vista would barely be worth it.

Here is a post I made awhile with some screenshots I took of Vista.

Heres the desktop complete with sidebar(with some gadgets) and the window preview(bottom).


Windows Media Player 11(kinda boring)


Me using Flip 3D(coolest feature evar!!)


Windows Media Center(now built right into Vista[not a seperate OS])


Oh dear. Microsoft updated the games! They've remained the same since Windows 3.1! Omgwtfbbq Chess!


Well thats all for now until I can find some new stuff to show.

how did you get the beta? Are you a signed up member w/ microsoft or are you getting it illgally?

also since you have it! when you upgraded did you have to re-install all the programs and/or wipe out the Hdd to re-install a new os? and are you experiacing any problems programs such as Firefox and stuff like photoshop and macromedia like not being able to install them because its not vista compabitle?

64 bit support is pointless because most software doesn't take advantage of it yet. Windows 2000 is the best version anyways.

The upgrade install is horribly, horribly flawed and is not recommended under any circumstances. And using Vista for anything practical is just dumb. It's in beta it's not meant to be your primary OS. The only thing I'd use it for is media/internet/ and word processing at the moment. Installing programs like PS and macromedia stuff probably won't work well. Firefox works just fine. But for some programs Vista just doesn't like the installer and won't even run(ex. MSN Cool.

The 64-bit version is leaps and bounds faster than the 32-bit version of Vista if you have a CPU that can take advantage of it. All of the MS software(IE, Office 2007, Media Center, and most utility programs) have been recoded to take advantage of the 64-bit processors and provide a significant speed boost. Especially in terms of compressing movies and the like.

Meh. I rather like it. It makes even old computers 49% faster.
Besides, you get a fun 3D interface! Completely useless yet generally amusing!
And finally, MSN 8.0 (Live) works perfectly.

WTF? Thats not what Flip 3D looks like. I don't think thats Vista Build 5308(latest build) because you don't even have the beta stamp in the bottom right corner of your desktop.

Well, you might want to wait, since most peoples jobs will give it to them for free.

I bet my dad is going to get it, and I'll just use his disc.
