Windows Vista pre-RC1


What we have here, ladies and gentlemen, is a quandary. To the right, a MacBook that’s not doing very much at the moment (odd but true — and no, you can’t have it). On the left, a DVD of Microsoft’s Windows Vista pre-RC1 release, since inexplicably it seems that 100,000 people haven’t downloaded it from this page. But I did, just now, and burned that disc. In the background, on my Power Mac, Apple’s BootCamp beta1.1; for the unfamiliar, this allows one to put the thing on the left into the thing on the right, and for something moderately sensible to happen.

The quandary is this: now I’m in a position to do this, can I actually be arsed? It’s not like I really have the free time, but… gee, you know. It’s like the future, and everything.

What do you think? Should I? Really?


  1. Oh go on, you know you want to (and as someone on the verge of buying a macbook pro, I wouldn’t mind seeing someone else play guinea pig first).
