I have been avoiding installing Windows Vista for 6 months now, but I told a friend today that I would take the time to install the latest official "friends and family" build this weekend and provide my feedback - privately.
Vista setup is currently at 27% "Copying Windows files" on a newly formatted Dell Dimension 5100C with 2GB of RAM, 250 GB HD, and an unknown video card (I never used this box before).
I must admit, I am kind of excited to be installing a new version of Windows for the first time in over 4 years. How will it compare to my Macs? Is this build close enough to a public beta? I will know soon enough.
I will post my overall impression here in the next few days - without compromising any confidentiality agreement.
