That's just awesome. I'm happy for Microsoft. I look forward into having Vista on my computer. but sadly I don't have the money right now. I'll probably stay with Windows Xp for abit longer.

Im thrilled that vista is going to be on time. It will really Push Apple to improve OS X because for the first time in years windows is on par with OS X (and I RARELY[/i] praise MS)

Yup, RC2 is sweet. Though games framerate is a buck of crap.
Basically i blame terrible Creative drivers for my X-Fi and still pretty beta graphic drivers. Programs work really sweet. Even tried avast! today and it worked perfectly. Can't wait to get this thing on my PC for real :)

Hi Mac,
Is that really you talking? I can't believe it.
Now I guess I'll have to install this latest version.  :)
