For reasons I'm not entirely clear on, I have decided to take Windows Vista (RC1) for a spin on my home desktop PC. The installation program is still doing its thing; it's just put my PC into reboot #2. So far, I can say two things. First, this is definitely an installer of the Lie back, close your eyes, and think of the good of England variety. I have seen more informative DOS prompts. Second, if you are at all sensitive to monitors emitting 60Hz flicker, the all-graphical Vista installer will send you running for the Ibuprofen.
