    I downloaded the vista beta 2 file from microsoft the other day and it downloads as an ISO file. I tried to open that file in XP and all it would let me do is burn it to a dvd (but I don't have a dvd burner). So, I pulled out my ipod, transfered the 3.13 gb file to it and used Apple's disk utility to open the ISO file and copy the contents out!! With out my trusty mac, I wouldn't have vista beta 2 on my pc. Its funny how simple and easy it was for my mac to open that file...while windows was completely clueless.

    On another note...Does microsoft like to copy mac OS's? Hmm...Tiger had "widgets" while vista now has "gadgets"...coincidence? The new IE 7 looks strangely familiar...(safari!!)...Way to come up with your own ideas, Microsoft...

    I thought it looked more like a badly worked version of Firefox. Remember, Safari doesn't always pioneer features either.
