Dear all,
Is there any online source that provides Vista for evaluation purposes?
Many thanks in advance!

There is an evaluation download for Windows 7 RC (which is somewhat similar to Vista in terms of the software it supports and drivers it requires) at:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/download.aspx

Yup Jun 17, 2009

There is no Vista trail available, but Windows 7 mentioned in the previous post would be a good idea to try instead. It should be officially released in October.

Apparently it is very popular question Jun 17, 2009

There are two main options:

You may install any version of Vista on your computer without entering a licence key and use it for 30 days (with some effort for 120 days - see here: http://windowssecrets.com/comp/070215#story1)

Or alternatively you can download here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=c2c27337-d4d1-4b9b-926d-86493c7da1aa&displaylang=en trial version which works on Virtual PC - not so great for real work but great for testing.

Best Regards
Stanislaw

The Windows 7 release candidate trial will work approx. one year.
It's a lot of time for testing thoroughlyicon_smile.gif

It should be officially released in October.

Compared to Vista, it works remarkably well.
My old Pentium IV with 2 GB RAM works as a charm.

Cheers

Hi Grzegorz,
Considering Microsoft's advice of files backup procedures, etc. , I'd rather install Windows 7 RC on a secondary PC to avoid unwelcome surprisesicon_smile.gif.

Yes, it's a purely test machineicon_smile.gif

BTW.
Trados 2007 Suite and 2009 Studio seems to work well.
I'll try to test other CAT tools too but I suppose the compatibility will be good.
If Trados works...icon_smile.gif

Cheers
