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.

Confusing

I like the new look a lot. Translucency(sp?) on window bars is very cool.

But here is something I don't like: the new List View UI. It looks very confusing.

I can't wait to have a desktop running at 1600x1200 but with the readability of the 1152x864 resolution. Those fonts will be crispy looking. ;)
