Test drive Windows Vista

The Windows Vista Test Drive website is up:

The Windows Vista Test Drive allows you to try the latest operating system from Microsoft without having to install it on your PC. Simply log in to our test environment using your webbrowser and you will be able to experience Windows Vista first hand.

Windows Vista Test Drive

When you go there, you’ll need to install the Virtual Server 2005 Virtual Machine Remote Control (VMRC) client ActiveX control but it only takes a few seconds. Do take note of the small print:

  • The test drive experience is currently available only to web visitors from the United States and Canada.

  • The test drive is intended for evaluation purposes only.

  • The test drive requires Internet Explorer 6 or later, a browser plug-in, and a broadband Internet connection. A minimum 1024 x 768 screen resolution is recommended.

  • There is no product support for the test drive. You are welcome to participate in a Microsoft Windows Vista newsgroup to share your trial experiences with others and ask for advice. Find a Windows Vista Newsgroup.

  • The Windows Vista version hosted in the test drive contains most of the functionality of the regular versions, but browsing the internet is not enabled
