Subject: Update - Windows Vista Friends and Family (CAS) Beta
We did it. On January 30, 2007 Microsoft shipped the latest version of the Windows Operating System, Windows Vista T to our consumer customers. Once again we want to thank all of our beta participants for helping make this the best operating system in the world and the smoothest launch of any Microsoft product.
If you have not visited the new Windows Vista web site, please take a moment to enjoy the show.
For members of the Consumer Assisted Support (CAS) Beta, the launching of Windows Vista means that we are ready to ship out copies of Windows Vista to each participant. We are placing the order today and hope to have the product in the mail in the next week or so. The next email you will receive from us will say we have shipped the product to you and 30 days after that we will declare the CAS Beta completed. On completion date support for the CAS beta will end.
When the DVD package arrives you will have the opportunity to either upgrade your Release Candidate version to the Released Version of Windows Vista, or you can do a clean install and start out fresh. In an upcoming email and with the DVD package we send, you will find full instructions on the different ways you can back up your data and the different options you have for installing.
We have had a number of users ask us about installing 64-bit version of Windows Vista and we are happy to announce that the package we mail includes one retail license that can be used for installing either the 32-bit version (most common) of Windows Vista or for those machines with 64-bit processors you can install the 64-bit version; the package contains both DVD.
I hope you enjoyed participating in the beta testing of Windows Vista. Thanks again for all your feedback; you've helped make the best version of Windows yet.
The staff at the Consumer Assisted Support Beta.
