Get the beta and review it
don't get the beta

I dont want to vote, show me the results!
Me and my dad were curious to try out Windows Vista (the beta)...

The beta version is available but only if you buy it ... I can't remember the price ... Anyways, i was wondering if i should go ahead and get it with my dad and i could do a review for it on L4Y? My dad and i were debating it because his job is closely tied to computers and he probably should get a head start learning the new OS. I, however, am just curious to see what all it can do (check out new features, and see if it can still run RF )

So the question is ...

Should me and my dad go ahead and buy it, and ill give a review here on L4Y? or should i not buy it ...

Whilst it sounds very interesting, the concept of paying for beta software is anathema to me.

Look in the right places and you wont have to pay for it.

Out of interest how much are they charging anyway?

actually you would pay for the beta ... but when the real full version comes out you can send in a coupon or something to get it for free ...

and no warlord it is not just available to software companies ... its available to businesses , i found a quote and a site of where you can get it but i don't know where it is right now , if i find it i will post it ...

Let the professionals do the beta testing. Why put yourself through all the pain of having to reformat your hard drive when you are not happy with it?

Damn you Mono, I had to look that word up. Damn my cursed public school teaching.

Actually, I tested it out a while back. I dunno if my rig would even run the beta though... With that Aero theme anyway..

The rig I tested it on I was borrowing.
