Re: Windows Vista Beta 2 Public Download Available Soon

Cool. Can't say 5384.4 has been one of my favorite builds though. 5365 was my favorite build so far. Rock solid and fast as hell. :D
I'm hoping the next build fixes the window animation stuttering issue that apparently lots of people have been experiencing.

Re: Longhorn - new details emerge!

The only real advantage that I have seen in the Beta? (I do corporate level security evaluations) Microsoft has locked the 'baby' down like Fort Knocks when it comes to Pirating this OS.

I just wish that they would take 1/1,000,000th as much care with 'OUR' data as they do with 'Theirs'.

Nuff' said........... BACK UP YOUR DATA!

Anyone know whether the x86 and x64 keys are interchangeale? I went through the sign-up and was given a key and links to the x86 version. Will my key work with the x64 version links from above?

I would think so because the same thing happened to me. I did the process twice so i could get 2 keys though.
