Has anyone played around with the beta of Windows Vista?

My cousin "obtained" a beta of the soon-to-be-released OS from Windows. I dunno if it was a bad CD or his machine or what, but it took like 3 hours just to get halfway done with the install. At that point we decided to quit.

The reccomended system requirements are 512 MB of RAM and a 64-meg video card. He's running an XP 2500 with 256 MB of DDR.

More interesting info here:

No. They actually haven't released requirements to my knowledge, but according to the article, 512 is "reccomended." I still don't know why only have 256 MB of RAM would cause the install to slow to a crawl.

It says here that 512 MB or greater of RAM memory is required. For example, Windows XP would only work decently if you have 256 MB or greater. My XP runs just fine on my hardware, since it's a 512 MB.

Basically, whatever you're getting, make sure your system requirements are doubled than the requirements in order to get positive results.

Maybe because this is their next generation, hell xp wants 256, you would think common sense would tell you the next one would want more... And what self respecting nerd, would only have 256 of memory anyway??? And if he is not a nerd, why is he trying out vista beta???
