Vista and sleeplessness

Posted by David Leslie on June 16, 2006

Following the steps on LifeHacker, I was able to get my box up and running with Vista beta 2 in about 90 minutes starting from the time I first opened Partition Magic till I got to set my first sidebar widget.

Things so far have been about as expected given that this is a beta. Drivers are not as tight so things are not quite as peppy as with Windows XP Media Center. However Vista's most noted glass effect are worth the beta hassles. The new layout for accessing your files is very Mac like. So far I'm not cool with it since I HATE the Mac's file system. Never fear, there is a way to see the folders.

Now if I just had enough time to dig into the new Movie Maker and DVD maker, I'll be happy.
