the successor to Vista will move into public beta testing early next year.
If I have a lot of time on my hands, I'll go for the BETA. I had VISTA BETA 1 and 2 installed before release. Ha, I had VISTA BETA 1 on a socket 462 AMD 3200 and ATI 9200 with 1Gig PC3200. Ran fine. Recently tried a free trial of Windows Home Server. M$ must have been swamped with orders for the free trial. Took several months to get my free trial CD to me. Hey, when Windows 7 comes out you can slipstream me a copy with SP1, ship it to me and I'll let you know which way the wind blow.
