Seriously. January 2007 is the slated release month. No exact date has been released, but you should wait at least half a year before you buy it. It will be expensive when it first comes out. I remember when Windows XP first released...the Professional edition cost almost three times the price it is today, if I'm correct.

Anandtech benchmarked the Vista Beta, and unless you really just want it for bragging purposes or just the looks, don't even bother gaming with it. The 32-bit version of Vista took more than one minute just to boot up into the login screen and the 64-bit version took a little less than one minute.

Haha, that's why I used the Vista Transformation Pack. Looks way better than the Luna and Royale theme.

In spite of all this, KDE is far more customizable than the vista background! Aero transparent windows? Yeah, t3h linux has had that for years. ^_^
