    Windows Vista - With pictures

    Microsoft has released a public beta of the new Windows Vista. Looks a lot different than prior editions, especially the start menu and what used to be the control panel. Take a look below:

    Pretty sharp screen shoots.

    That "Getting started" is that the same as "Start"?

    Looks like having multiple web pages open is easier.

    The get started icon was kind of an intro to Windows Vista. I'll take a screenshot of the new start menu. You can also choose the classic look of the start menu.

    Get Vista here:


    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvist...y/default.mspx


    EDIT : Limitations to the Beta Install:

    Installation limitations
    There are two installation scenarios for Windows Vista Beta 2 (and RC1):
    You can do a clean installation. This process will overwrite any data that you have on your hard disk or on your installation partition. The overwritten data will be lost and unrecoverable.
    You can upgrade an existing installation of Windows XP.

    No other installation scenarios are supported. Upgrading to this beta from any other edition of Windows requires a clean installation, as described in option 1. In addition, once you install Windows Vista Beta 2 (or RC1) you cannot roll back to the previous operating system installation—you will either have to acquire and install the final released edition of Windows Vista or reinstall a previous edition of Windows. Before installing Windows Vista Beta 2 on any computer, please remember to back up all your files.

    What Operator13 posted is the link I downloaded from. Keep in mind, it is a 3.13GB file, so unless you have a fairly fast connection, and a DVD burner (to burn the ISO file), you might be better off paying $6 for Microsoft to send you a copy.
