For those of us who have to have the latest of everything, Windows Vista Beta 2 is now available to the public.
Go to this site first, to see if your computer has what it takes to run Windows Vista (my laptop didn't! :( :( )
(Be advised - Windows Vista Beta 2 is a 4-hour download on a T1 internet connection. If you're on dialup - you might as well order the DVD for $6.)
