Default Any one use Vista RC1?

Hey, I just wanted to know if anyone used the Vista RC1 beta? Does it block programs because its free? Or is it almost the entire vista for free for a few months? Does it have bugs and what not? I'm just curious what its like because I might try it on my new PC.

that's what I've read so far and I think that's what it's set for, of course unless there's another delay which I'm hoping there isn't.

Do a lot of programs not work with the 64-bit part? Are there a lot of bugs in it?

Yeah I just saw that RC2 was out in a another thread, I just ordered RC1 from Microsoft because we have dial-up.

I hate all Vista releases, just because it makes my PC lock up in Video and 3D rendering games. I'm p!ss3d off.

I heard direct X 10 will only work in Vista, I wonder if it'll work in RC1 or 2.
