Windows Vista Beta Available

There is now a Vista public Beta available from the Microsoft site. I was just going to download it when I read it said that it expires in July 2007 and to upgrade to the full retail version you will need to do a complete reinstall not just an upgrade. I guess that means having to backup all your files and reinstalling all your programs and settings. That sounds fun.

It would be interesting though to see what testers think of vista though so I guess I’ll be checking technorati for some posts on it.

I don’t think I will be buying Vista when it comes out anyway, I have my Mac and I’m happy with it. Besides, Leopard will probably blow Vista out of the water, especially since Tiger is already the same sort of technology that vista will have, and its been out for a long time. not sure exactly but it must be over a year by now easily.
