So they're already dropping Vista? Not surprising...

Haha. So Windows is copying Apple. What a shame...

And yet how am I not surprised.

I fooled around with Windows 7 ages ago, as one of my uncles is quite high up on the Microsoft company ladder, and I got to try it out and all that.

It's an update of Vista. Nothing really that new, just a new user interface setup.

That sounds really cool!! I'd be a sure beta tester if I weren't scared stiff of compatibility and instability issues. *Shivers*

If your uncle is high on the MS ladder, why are you playing with Prince? :roll:

Jk :D

I don't get the joke. I play with Prince because I've always played with Prince. I've got a really fast swing and I like dead, thin-beamed frames, and the o3 Tour was a perfect match.

Yeah, there is a warning under the download button. It says that if you don't know a lot about beta testing, that you probably shouldn't do it.
