Windows Vista Test Drive


The first place you that can experiment with Windows Vista for free is the Windows Vista Test Drive site. This site, which is powered by Microsoft Virtual Labs and hosted by Exsilio Consulting, will allow you to take a spin with Windows Vista right from within your Web browser. The only requirements are Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher, the most current version of JavaScript, a broadband Internet connection, 1024 x 768 screen resolution, and a small ActiveX control. With this simple set of requirements, you’ll be able to connect to the site and either follow along with a set of guided exercises or just dive in and begin exploring the OS for yourself.

When you connect to the site, you’ll have the option of exploring Vista from a small business perspective with Windows Vista Business Edition or an enterprise perspective with Windows Vista Enterprise Edition. Once you choose, you’ll be prompted to sign in by entering just an e-mail address if you choose the small business perspective, or by filling in a more detailed form, if you choose the enterprise perspective. A system check will then determine your version of Internet Explorer and JavaScript and then prompt you to install the Virtual Server VRMC Advanced Control ActiveX control.

You’ll then navigate through a simple menu system and select an area or feature of interest. You can choose to view a video describing the feature or you can take a test drive. A set of instructions will guide you to the feature or you just explore at will. You can even check out the new Solitaire, if you want.
