Here it is. Or at least that's where it's supposed to be. Traffic's heavy this morning, do you may have to wait for Windows Vista Beta 2, Microsoft's latest and greatest operating system. Intended for tech pros and IT folks, the company says it's also "available to technology enthusiasts that want to install and test a copy of Windows Vista Beta 2." The new OS build is available in three languages: English, German, and Japanese.
Make sure you run Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor, a program that tells you whether your PC is man enough to run the software. My two-year-old Vaio :( Maybe I'm not either.
Meanwhile, new from the labs of Google, a terrific extension for the Firefox browser. If, like me, you use both a laptop and a desktop, this little program will help you keep the same settings – bookmarks, history, persistent cookies, and saved passwords on each PC. It slows the start-up of Firefox a bit, checking for changes you may have made on the other computer, but it's a dandy, simple add-in. It works.
