Live on Vista Beta 2 & 2007 Office Beta 2

So, here we are, live on Vista Beta 2 and running the 2007 Microsoft Office System Beta 2 for day-to-dat activities. Last weekend I moved from the previous Vista CTP build - which was running on a rather small partition just for sake of demos - to the beta 2 stage running on my main partition. And it's just running soooo smoothly, I absolutely love it. The same holds for the 2007 Office tools which I'm working with every day right now. One thing I love about Word 2007 is the new equation editor, as I'm writing a lot of math the last couple of weeks.

Oh, and I also enabled BitLocker Drive Encryption (I never trusted that before the beta stage, shame on me), so my personal stuff is absolutely secure against theft (the key is kept on a USB stick, as I don't have a TPM in my machine).

Usually I don't show my desktop to everyone, but here's a little screenshot (click to enlarge).
