Remember it still is in Beta stages though. When its finally released, alot more features will probably be available, and also, the great Direct X 10!

I for one, haven't tried Viesta yet, though I don't have the hard drive for it anyway.

A buddy of mine 'acquired' vista, I don't know if it was the latest build or not, but it was one unstable POS. Totally unimpressed. I can understand a beta having issues, but sheesh, this should be labeld ALPHA.

looks just like a snazzier version of xp. vista sounds just like the windows 2000 to xp upgrade which was mainly appearance based but with some extras also added. i just hope in the final release that there is more than just snazzy looking themes.

and i doubt you would just be 'given' a full version of visita... its most probably a beta/illegal version...

I do have to admit, it does look like Windows XP with a skin on it, but thats all Viesta does look like anyway. Its the workings behind it all that makes the difference.

It will definietly be a beta version.
