If you were unable to test Windows Vista up to now because you didn't have a Product Key, then here's your chance now. Everyone can download the 32-bit and 64-bit version of Windows Vista. Ah, and for my German readers: Vista RC1 gibt's jetzt auch auf Deutsch! I think, recently I also saw some Japanese guys accessing my blog. Unfortunately, my Japanese is a bit rusty, so I have to tell you in English that Vista is available in your language too.

If you are a system administrator, I highly recommend starting with Windows Vista now. It will take a sometime to get used to its new user interface and there are many new things you have to learn about its deployment and management. You probably only have a little extra time every day for it. Thus, it would probably take you several months until you'll master Vista.
By the way, there is always a lively discussion after such announcements in the Windows Vista Team Blog. They usually have lots of pingbacks there. It is a good chance to look for new interesting blogs.
