    Now, once you restart your computer, you'll get a choice to boot into XP or Vista.

    "Microsoft Windows" refers to Vista, and "Earlier version of Windows" refers to XP. The default choice is Vista, and you have 25 seconds to make another choice. Otherwise it boots into Vista automatically. (I'm sure one can change this behavior; something to research.)

    There's much to be discussed regarding Vista, so this is the first of a series posts that will go up over the next few weeks. If you're feeling brave and wildly curious and not afraid to completely destroy your PC with unstable code, take a stab at a Vista installation and let us know how it goes. Everyone else? Post your questions and comments about Vista below or send us an email at tips at
