...stupid security annoyances! It drives me crazy!

...and that will be the number one comment when it ships. :blink:

There are a couple of tricks to reduce the annoyances while retaining much of the security. If they're not covered by NDA, I'll make a post about them. :whistling:

I was curious if this current Vista Beta 2, is just a time trial, that will eventually EXPIRE...along with all your other data and installed software programs. :whistling:

As far as i know it isnt the RCs might be but they will probably just not offer any support for them and no reactivation after the release of the product. If you are running a multiple OS though you should really have a seperate partition for your data.

You may not be able to reactivate your beta after the final version comes out, but you will still have access to all of your data after it expires. Just install another OS on your machine or stick the hard drive into another machine and copy your files :whistling:

I think there's a fine line between user-friendly and eye candy.

XP is user-friendly. Vista is eye candy.
