Vista: Microsoft Offers Free Online “Test Drive”

Windows VistaMicrosoft has unveiled a new website entitled “Windows Vista Test Drive” that will allow just about anyone to check out Windows Vista without actually installing it.

If you have Windows 2000 or XP with IE6 or IE7 and you are okay with downloading their Virtual Machine Remote Control (VMRC) ActiveX control when prompted, you are good to go with the test drive.

Once through all setup mumbo jumbo, you will be awarded with Vista running in a virtual machine on a 640×480 screen. It won’t be the fastest thing in the world, but it will definitely give you a decent look at the OS if you are thinking about upgrading or if you are just the curious type.
