Windows Today, Microsoft released the first beta of Windows Vista. PC Mag reviews it. "After several years of waiting to see the successor to Windows XP, code-named Longhorn, we've finally gotten our hands on Beta 1 of what now will be called Windows Vista." They also have 40 screenshots. Elsewhere, MS has announced the official names for Avalon and Indigo.

Apple is definately beating WIndows in terms of asthetics. I don't own a Mac but I must admit there's something pleasing about the interface. It's almost relaxing it's hard to explain. Microsoft has been good at seeing where it's competitors are going and seeing how it works out so it can be integrated. I know it's not the final product but it seems like Windows is just slowly progressing. No real inovation. Oh well...maybe next revision....
