Step right up and download Microsoft's latest and greatest

Well, here it is folks. After announcing the availability of Vista Beta 2 for developers and IT professional two weeks ago, the latest build is now available for public download.

MSBLOG reports that the English, German and Japanese builds are available in x86 and x64 versions. You will have to download the 3GB+ ISO file with a download manager provided by Akamai Technologies.

Considering that this is a huge software release for consumers, be sure to post in the comments sections about your thoughts/experiences/likes/dislikes about the new operating system. I've been using it for the past week and have generally been impressed so I'm eager to see what you guys think.

Updated 06/08/2006: Get your product keys here.

Mac hardware is trash
It costs as much as Dell's (or any other decent brand's) equivalent hardware but it's designed much better - slick and thin cases, light and silent as well, not like your generic beige or black PC tower. So by saying "Mac hardware is trash" you actually calling your ugly Dell and HP towers even worse than trash, how about "our bland looking Dell PCs are stinking pile of manure"?

It makes sence to compare price-wise and design-wise, not the blind way you just did. Then (maybe) your comments won't look this stupid ;-)

Most people don't buy premade, they make their own. That is why we can say Mac is trash, because for the same dollar we can get something with 1.5x the power.

Oh, and we can pick our own cases, so we are not limited to black, white or any other less attractive design if we don't want it. (But as my Dad would point out, its a computer, who cares what it looks like. Just stick it under the desk and forget about it.)
