Reinstalling Windows XP Pro Tablet PC Edition

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 3-Jul-2006 13:04

Oh well, time to replace Microsoft Windows Vista Beta 2 on my Tablet PC with the Windows XP Pro Tablet PC Edition.

Lots of reasons for this, but mainly because I really need stability on a device that is going places with me. As I found out last week in Sydney, the wireless drivers are not stable enough on Windows Vista to allow me to connect to some hotspots, and the new build has some flaws in other areas.

So I decided to give the beta testing a break, resintall a stable OS on this machine and go with this.

Later I will revisit this decision, when we get to a point where the OS is good enough for me to rely on it. Until then, folks, remember this is beta test, so faults are there to be found. Don't use this in production environments and be always prepared to restore your previous OS, as I am doing now.

Good luck to all people testing Windows Vista Beta 2.
