Want to get your hands on Vista?

Beta 2.0 of Vista is out the door, and according to Microsoft's Shanen Boettcher, it's feature-complete. If you want to test it out right this minute, you'll need an MSDN subscription.

However, it'll shortly (in a couple of weeks, apparently) be available worldwide through the Windows Vista Beta Experience – which you can register for here: www.microsoft.com/betaexperience.
