In between the football for the weekend I’ve set aside a little bit of time to flex the operating sytem muscles after picking up a copy of Partition Magic.
After downloading a copy of the latest Ubuntu release (700mb iso) and I’m currently in the process of picking up Windows Vista Beta 2. Having refused torrent downloads and cracked offers spread across the internet, it will be interesting to see how Vista shapes up. I know there’s issues with certain Adobe products but hopefully all goes well.
Anyone considering installing either OS I would seriously suggest partitioning your HD, if not for practical hardware reasons, then at least to keep your sanity if you decide to overwrite your existing copy of XP or Linux release.
If you’re interested, pop along to this address at Microsoft, fill out a registration form to pick up your license key and sit back as you wait for a 3GB ISO to download, at which stage you’ll be wanting a DVD burner, or something useful like Alcohol 120% or Daemon Tools to mount the ISO as a virtual CD drive.
