I have Windows Vista as of yesterday. So far, I like it, but I did have Beta2 and the RC's...

I wonder if Microsoft is cutting off the BETA now that they expect people to cough up $120 for it?

The beta and release candidates are time release software - they're set to expire on June 1st

who cares if they spy on you, are you afraid some men in black will show up at your door or something?

with billions of text/searches..etc, it would be impossible to keep a specific eye on you, they would have to filter very specific things and even then there would be billions of messages per week for people to sort through

some people just watch too much x-files

If you have the firewall enabled then nobody can spy on you...

this was true on xp with a 3rd party firewall. this isn't true on vista.
