Default Windows Vista

I just have to say...testing the new pre-rc1...if you buy a new powerful pc and don't use vista...you're wasting it. Besides of course dx10 only comes with vista

oh man, it's so sweet...sure it's eye candy but that's just a part of it

I hope they give testers a 50% discount or something, or free...I'll get the ultimate edition

one of the easiest ways of course, depending on how you look at it, is signing up for the small windows of "open beta" testing...and do a good record they tend to come back to you again

I've done these for something like 15 years...so my name is reg'd pretty well with them. And some games! ;p
