Windows Vista on my Dell Inspiron 6000d

I installed Vista Beta 2 on my Dell last night.  I like it so far.

All of our Homestead apps work.  Araxis Merge works.  Firefox works.

Vista’s Library(think browser history, but for the file system) and live screen shots on the taskbar are both pretty cool.  I also like the glass effect around windows.

I haven’t found flip3D or Sidebar, yet.  Also, I have a DirectX 9, 64MB Graphics Card (Radeon X300), but I can’t figure out where it tells me if it’s using the GPU to render the UI.

The instant search in the start bar is very cool.

More tomorrow…
