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!
