On Vista, I have been using this beta for a while. This thing CRASHES every time I check mail or switch between two mail accounts.

I expect Beta software to be software thats incomplete but barely functional. This crashes so often, it' not even ready to be labeled Beta..

My thoughts

We get spoiled by allot of betas, MS doesn't really label there betas of apps so you know how early a beta it is, Beta means testing and earlier releases will be pretty unstable especially when you use it in conjunction with an operating system that is also beta. Its seems more stable on XP when ive tried it, seems to be a vista thing.

Scot,
Good to know. I like the core product but its buggy as sh%$%t.

Unfortunately Vista is like a Lexus at this point, comfortable and reliable but doesn't excite. I think the majority of users wanted a BMW, hard driving and exciting.

When it's stable it tends to excite, seeing as windows is alike a f.o.r.d. Fix Or Repair Daily
