Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
As you’ll recall, I posted a preliminary version of the Windows Vista Product Guide (also known as “The Book of Windows Vista”) a few weeks ago. It was in .xps form and initial feedback was very good. However, in order to view and print the must have information, you needed to install WinFX. XPS is the XML Paper Specification. Well, we got some good critical feedback and guess what, we listened.
Now, you can download this puppy in Microsoft word or XPS format. Careful though, it’s not your daddies download. It’s 60MB of rich knowledge transfer. It’s a comprehensive view of the feature set in Windows Vista. There are consumer oriented chapters. There are chapters devoted to the IT Pro feature set.
You’ll need to decide if you are going be eco friendly or not. Use it in “digital” form or send it to your trusty duplex printer. Either way, I think you’ll enjoy this guide as you take your journeys to the wonderful world that is Windows Vista.
It’s my understanding this will also be printed and sold in a hard back format. I think it would make a nice edition in my library. Maybe I can get Brian or Jim to autograph one for me. Now that would really be kewl.

Enjoy my friends!!!
