My copy of Vista is coming, I think

I’ll get into the serious hassles I’ve had buying a copy of Vista today for another post on another blog, but assuming the order goes through as planned, I should have my copy of Vista Business 64 bit this week!

Am I excited?  You bet.  A 64 bit OS for my 64 bit processor.  Aero.  All the stuff.  I found out today that Carbonite does work with Vista, it’s just the UI is broken and the new version will be out soon (thanks Jess!).

For this blog, of course, I’ll be seeing how Vista might help you do your work better.  Of course I’ll talk about hiccups I hit along the way.

The count-down is on.
