So I bit the bullet and installed the RTM (Released To Manufacturing…the final codebase that will appear on the retail and OEM disks) version of Windows Vista. I was in on the beta test for Vista, so I got a legit version of the RTM release. So far, everything is good except for sound card issues.
So here’s my new Vista desktop…the wallpaper is one that comes stock with Vista. I’m still kicking the tires so to speak, but so far, I’m VERY impressed. I’ve never been a real fan of Microsoft, but if they can ride the wave of positive press I’m sure they will get from the Vista release (January 30 2007, 2 days after my birthday), the next few years should be very good for Microsoft.
