Well, I’ve finally found a few hours laying around to plop the latest beta code on my machine – yet again. What have we got this time? The usual Vista and Office 2007, etc…
Initial observations seem to back up what I’ve been hearing about performance. Stability on Beta 2 of Vista & Office was not a problem for me, but performance was.
Vista RC1 and Office 2007 B2TR are comperable in performance to a freshly installed Windows XP & Office 2003 setup. So I’ll be continueing to install my usual cadre of software and continue working away.
I fully expect to be able to run this software stack until the final releases are available. Hopefully that’ll mean a new laptop for yours truely, but I’m not going to hold my breath.
Looks good so far – kudos Microsoft!
