Want to test Vista

Update: Due to the completion of the beta program, the nominations are not longer accepted.

Please nominate yourself at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/beta/preregister.mspx  for the next change to participate. Beta 2 should be open to public in the end of summer.

I will be deleting all the email addresses posted on this blog to prevent spam to your inboxes.

Sincere apologies, and check around summer for Beta 2.



Do you want to check out Vista before it is released to market and be a partner in helping Microsoft ship a fantastic Operating system.

Well, here is your chance. If you are in US and want to test drive Windows Vista, drop a comment with your email address and I will arrange to send a Beta invite to you.

Play with Vista and find out how this OS will impact your life.

PS: You should be familiar with installing/reinstalling the OS. A beta product is not guaranteed to be stable.
