    Vista beta open to all and sundry

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

    Up to two CD keys per passport, a key will activate on up to ten PCs.

    No Technet or MSDN subscription required. However the server is really getting hammered atm so you probably won't be able to download it right now.

    if anyone gets an .iso to put up on this site, we could take some of the pressure off Microsoft ;-)

    Re: Vista beta open to all and sundry

    Thanks for the direct link :-)

    Am I the only one suprised by this move by MS?

    Anyway, does anybody know if this will set up a dual boot on installation or will it try to wipe my current installation?

    TIA

    Darren
