Vista Beta 2

Well, tonight I took the plunge and installed Microsoft Windows Vista Beta 2 on my Dell PC at home. I am liking it so far. Alot of security alerts. Its always nice to start digging into the new technology as soon as you can. I have tried a few programs and found they don’t work, you would think that software makers would be starting to test and have updates, etc. Hopefully by the time of launch we will see more app compatability, etc. It is a memory hog (runs at 800 mb constant), but I guess that is expected with the video/display changes (Aero). I’m actually going to try to use IE7 and see how well it works, instead of Firefox, until I can’t stand it anymore. Anyone know of any cool tricks in Vista that arent there in XP?
