If you weren't able to make is out to the Windows Vista Install Fest that Bruce ran last weekend, but you do have a copy of Vista Beta 1 (either via TechNet or MSDN), then you may want to take a look that the self guided tour document.

The guide is a pretty good overview of some of the new features in Vista including:

  • User Account Protection
  • Internet Explorer (IE) Security
  • Deployment Advancements (with XImage)
  • Desktop Management
  • Desktop Search
  • PC-to-PC Synchronization
  • Network Presentation

If you have just installed Vista Beta 1 and are not sure what to do next, head over to http://www.microsoft.com/technet/windowsvista/evaluate/sgtour.mspx to get the guide and start exploring.

Have fun...
