Windows Vista Beta 2 - part 1

I registered for the Vista Beta 2 yesterday, and should have finished
downloading the file a little later today, which means I can install it this
week-end (quite possibly later tonight after we return from my brother's
birthday supper).

I am looking forward to seeing what it looks like, but I am little concerned
about the minimum/required specs. I am fine on everything, but apparently,
Vista requires 15GB of free hard disk space. I know an XP Pro installation
requires around 2GB of disk space, and a full 2003 Server install is also in
the region of 2GB - so why would Vista require 15GB of free space? I suppose
I will find that out after tonight.

I should be able to comment on Vista by the end of this week-end.
