    Hi All.

    I would like to test Vista. How do I do it???

    When the test runs out, will XP be restored or will I have no O/s?

    Since Vista has been released to production, no further "testing" is available. In about a week, you can purchase the copy of your choice and do all the testing you like.

    It comes out the 30th. 5 days till launch. Download the small prgram to see if your computer will be compatible for the entire Vista experience. Squashman put up the links to get there.

    The American one has gone down. The UK (overclockers) is still there. Academic now. In my country of residence, all the flavours are freely available for purchase in the retail shops.

    That depends on the specific computer. Can we have a make/model? How much memory do you have installed? How many free memory slots do you have?
