Windows Millions of computer users participate in software beta programs every year, usually toiling away in anonymity, never quite sure if whatever they find or report will matter in the final product. Others find the experience a lot more fulfilling, such as the families that participated in Microsoft's Life with Windows Vista program. In addition to the more than 2 million testers of Vista, Microsoft selected 50 families from around the world and watched, in a reality TV kind of way, how they interacted with Vista, right out of the box with the first beta and all the way up to release to manufacturing.

Now if MS could fix the ICS colour bug.

This OS is turning out a very solid release.

When in Windows Photo Gallery, the photos look fine in thumbnail mode. But when I open one to look at it, the white gets blue. I looked at the Vista forums, others have reported similar problem but their images get yellower. It's got something to do with their monitors colour profiles.

I don't get the problem in Irfanview. Only in Windows Photo Gallery and Fax and Preview.
