"Not for gamers or home builders"1.0 starson by RogueReaper
Pros: new apps Direct X 10
Cons: ELUA is Gestapo like
Summary: Ahhh, new OS! Whoooo hooooooo. The Beta version has some really nice features and applications. The problem I have is with Microsofts ELUA (End License User Agreement). Examples: Benchmark censorship, Mandatory Renewal pricing (rumor has it that this may be removed), no virtualization technologies - you won't be able to work with DRM's(Digital Rights Management) and you cannot reassign Vista to another device. If you are a gamer(one who adds upgrades), video editor, music editor or PC builder you won't be able to legally do these things anymore. The bad thing is, most people never read the EULA's so they only find out after they have already bought the product. I wish everyone would not buy Vista just for these reasons. Maybe then Microsoft would learn that we just want a product we can use and not be controlled like children. The problem is that when every average Joe goes to buy a computer from the chain store and Vista is already installed, they will have already put the money into Microsofts pocket to add more restrictions and controls on the next version.Updated
The version of Vista's EULA I have is the older version. I did not know that it was updated a few days ago. The funny thing is, I make this post and Microsoft sends me a varification authorization for my version of Windows. All of my software is legit - Coincidence, I think not.
