Vista DVD?

Recommended Posts

I ordered a copy of Windows XP Pro x64 and recieved a copy of Vista beta 2 with it and a key for vista. Should I install it? How long are the keys they send with the DVD's good for? My system is as follows:

Cpu=Conroe X6800e

Mobo=Intel D975XBX

sound=XF-I Platinum

video=Asus 7950gx2

memmery=4gb OCZ DDR2 800 rev 2

Is it worth a shot?

Please Help?

While I haven't seen official word from MS yet, but you can bet your panties that Vista keys will expire the day Vista goes RTM/Gold. If you want to use it in a virtual session or as a dual boot, fine, but don't try to use it as your home OS.

MS has already admitted they have many dirty tricks when your key expires such as program randomly refusing to run, and lots of nags.

I also agree, if you want to try Vista find RC2, beta 2 is ancient and will only leave a bad taste in your mouth.
