      The poll is flawed. Wouldn't it be much better for you to ask do you use Vista Beta, yes or no? Individually, how are we supposed to know how many others use it? And what if we all vote in contradictory ways. Plus, there are only a couple of dozen or so active regular users, never mind 1000.

      And what if 241 people used it, what then? :P

      Edit: poll changed, hee hee.

      I thought that I should try it, then I saw the requirements!  :o
      I don't have 1gig of RAM!
      And why the heck should and OS require [email protected]!

      It looks like it will get better, but I will wait before I even poke it with a 20 yard stick.

        LOL ........ Why on earth would anyone wish to spend the time to install a Beta operating system ....only to discover that it is flawed ........ LOL
        I'll wait until such times as the final release comes out and the service packs and fixes are in place .

        If you don't know the answer, it isn't a dumb question.

          I was using Windows 98SE up until a couple of years ago. Getting a newly released operation system is risky enough, getting the beta is asking for trouble.
