A variation of this is published at www.lockergnome.com/nexus/betagnome   which is my new home on lockergnome.com.

You may be with Chris Prillo’s Windows Vista Experience.

Well let me tell you mine have been no better, however it has been different. I started testing Vista at Beta 1, dual booting it with my XP install. Hardware problems were first to show up, not only from the lack of drivers standpoint, but “faulty” drivers as well.

Lack of drivers was and regretably still is a big issue, regardless of Microsoft PR.

PRINTER ISSUES
My color laser printer from Konica-Minolta, a 2300DL (less than 2 yrs old) doesn’t work the way it is supposed to. They claim that the Windows XP driver will work, it might, but the Network Printer functions do NOT, and that is how it is installed. Sure, I could “work around” that and share it on the same network. But that means the machine that it is connected to must be on for it to be available.

Read my next post which will tell the tale of the dual boot corruption issues at www.lockergnome.com/nexus/betagnome

Let me add one conclusion upfront and early - I like Vista, even if I have issues. If we don’t let Microsoft know what we don’t like and where we are frustrated - how can they make the “Vista Experience” better.
