They told you wrong. It was just released to the retail stores 2 days ago. A couple of months ago, Microsoft had released the Beta versions for public download but that is done and gone. You have to buy it now if you want it.

Yes, you could buy a Beta disk... but that was only a test of Vista.

If you want the full copy of Vista you have to buy a full copy. You cannot get it anywhere online, unless you order a physical copy of it from an online store such as Amazon.

However, if you have RC1 installed ( it is another beta version) it will continue to work until June 30,2007.

Some new computers came with a free upgrade package for vista. If yours did, contact the Mfg. to find out how to get it.
