I found a reason why Beta 2 should NOT be a Public Beta!

  1. I found a reason why Beta 2 should NOT be a Public Beta: The Computer
    Surgeon General's Warning: Do NOT Use the Windows Blue Energy Screen Saver,
    It will Freeze (Lock Up) Your Computer, just FYI.

    I had exactly the same problem. Which color of blue (light blue, blue or
    dark blue) are you using? I found that if you switched to a composite
    blue/green color the problem disappeared, just FYI.
    Frank
    P.S. try it!

    Is that really a reason it should not be a public beta? Haha, I still want it
    weither the screen savers work or not. However, I will say thanks for the
    warning.

    I look foreward to the public beta. It will be my first good look at the new
    operating system. "In the coming weeks...". Bummer.

  6. So if I change my Desktop Back Ground to something other then the Default
    Blue Color in both Client and Server Beta 2, the Problem will go Away,
    Correct?

  7. Update: I changed the Desktop Back Gound on Both Client and Server from the
    Default Blue Color to the Bright Red Color, and the Problem seems to have
    gone away, just FYI.

  10. I am Also Having Some Very Big Size Problems with Running Windows Live
    Messenger 8.0.689.0 Beta on Beta 2, just FYI.

    P.S. According to other Newsgroup Poster's: These Messenger Problem's also
    occur with the latest MSN Messenger 7.5 RTW (Release to Web) Release, also
    just FYI.

  11. Kevin;
    You screamed, begged, demanded and more for weeks to get access to a current
    Vista build.
    Of course none of which had any effect.

    I find it interesting now that you have Vista through MSDN Operating
    Systems, you are searching for excuses to keep Vista from others.

  12. Okay, well then, does the fact that Running Windows Live Messenger Beta
    Build 8.00.689.00 on Beta 2 (both Client and Server) causes a DEP (Data
    Execution Prevention) Error sound like a Serious Enough Error to You? To me
    it does sound like a Very Serious Issue, considering the fact that there are
    still a whole lot of Computer's that don't have 64-Bit Processor's with DEP
    Protection, just FYI!

    also affect The Latest RTW Release of MSN Messenger 7.5, also just FYI.

    I read this crap from Kevin and I wonder how or why it is that every ng
    I've ever logged onto has someone just like him who simply doesn't get it!
    I'm shocked that they can even boot up a computer!
    Life never ceases to amaze me.

    No problem. I just won't use Messenger. Besides, that's what happens when you
    use a beta messenger program on a beta operating system. That's just the
    nature of using beta software. I still want vista, just FYI.

    P.S. If you really need to chat, format your drive and reinstall xp, also
    just FYI.

    In this day and age when all but very old monitors go in to energy saving
    mode by themselves, why do people still insist on using lame screensavers?
    Thank god for the good users on these forums that actually test and help
    instead of whining and saying how the public shouldnt get a Vista trial over
    every lame little problem they find.
