    ______________
    Windows Vista introduces a breakthrough user experience and is designed to help you feel confident in your ability to view, find, and organize information and to control your computing experience.

    The visual sophistication of Windows Vista helps streamline your computing experience by refining common window elements so you can better focus on the content on the screen rather than on how to access it. The desktop experience is more informative, intuitive, and helpful. And new tools bring better clarity to the information on your computer, so you can see what your files contain without opening them, find applications and files instantly, navigate efficiently among open windows, and use wizards and dialog boxes more confidently.

    I'm presently downloading this but not sure about installing it until I read up on how well it's performing for others.

    The download manager they recommend for the 2.56 GB file is a good idea.

    thats good,but i was the same under the last available version.i found the download much faster direct & avoided the download manager which for me was much slower.

    I am avoiding this one as i found vista not only taken an eternity to install but the performance was also very slow.

    Besides looking at a few other news sources this build of vista is only available to the first 100,000 downloads then the servers are locked.How true this is i don't know.

    I did get the entire 2.56 GB. So, I'm going to burn it to DVD and hang on to it for now.

    If you have a valid cd-key, I believe its for quite awhile. Atleast 6 months.

    Someone tell me about this CD-KEY issue. I don't see anything on the download site other than 'signatures' that indicate anything remotely related to needing a CD-KEY. There are no links from the download site to anything other than the Download Manager and/or the direct download.

    Where are you seeing any links for the CD-KEY?

    Do you have to commence the installation to get that?

    The only limitation I see is that it will expire on June 1, 2007. That 'should' give plenty of time for the official release to come out prior to that.
