Windows Vista Beta 1
« on: August 01, 2005, 01:28:23 pm »
I was able to get my hands on a copy of the huge Windows Vista download (*cough*bittorrent*cough*). Microsoft decided to only allow MSDN subscribers to see their newest release, Windows Vista Beta 1.

MSDN subscriptions are outrageouse, http://msdn.microsoft.com/howtobuy/subscribers/, so I found the download elsewhere.

Note: Windows Vista includes IE7.

I have not had the time to write my full review, but when I do I will let you'all know. For now, I will direct you to my screenshots. They are in no particular order, (for instance, the installation shots are the last ones in the gallery), but it is worth a look.

Check it out here: http://stripslashes.net/gallery2/main.php?...&g2_itemId=2389.

Although it looks nice, there are some extreme problems with it currently, ESPECIALLY with explorer version 7. Full review soon.

<-- MS registered beta tester. Waiting for the DVD to come in (screw a 2.5gb download). I was downloading it before but cancelled it and ordered a DVD instead.

How stable does it seem to be, is it worth me trying to get it now *cough*bittorrent*cough* I'm just worried with it being a beta and all that programmes wont run, or it has majour problems they havent fixed.

CURSE YOU WINDOWS VISTA BETA

I installed it, and tried it out, its all good partitioned on my drive, except now when i try to get back to my windows xp os, it decides not to do a thing, i wont begin to load or anything, and I dont know why, its really annoying. Anyone got any ideas? (i know im a little vague with my description, but literally, thats all i know)
