Windows Vista Beta Edition

Has anyone out there tried out the Beta version of Windows Vista? I have a registration key for a copy of it that I got from Microsoft. It was recently released for public testing. I'm really curious about it but I don't know much about it. All I know is that it's supposed to be a really big operating system and very different from the other systems that Microsoft has released. All I know is that It takes about 5 hours to download it even if you are on broadband! I have no problem with running the Windows Xp that I am currently using, I just like to try new things out as they come along. I do know that Vista has some fairly high system requirements before you can even use it. If I'm not mistaken then a few of the requirements are 1 gig of ram, an 800mhz processor and a few other odds and ends. I'm sure that my PC would handle it just fine considering that it's a Dell XPS 400 that I had heavily upgraded before they sent it to me and I added some more stuff after it got here. I just wonder about how my other components like say my webcam and printer will handle it. I would think that since they were designed to run on my Xp system that a newer OS should accept them just fine but I guess I wont know till I try it. If anyone out there is either running Vista or has any reliable information about it then I'd love to hear it.

I know a couple of people who are on the beta tester list that are about to get to test out parts of it; if I hear anything, I'll let you know. As for me, I'm still maxedpissed over XP; I miss 98SE and legacy ports!

Lol, I never cared much for 98 but I know several people who feel like you do.
