Back in June, Microsoft let users interested in Office 2007 test drive the software online. They set up a simulation so that you could test each of the individual products and get a feel for what it was like . It was a pretty realistic test-drive that gave users a good idea of what to expect if they were to purchase Office 2007. Just recently, Microsoft has setup something similar so that users can participate in a Windows Vista Business Test Drive. Just like Office, it requires that you use Internet Explorer because it has to install an ActiveX plug-in.
It was a huge disappointment and does not give someone who is totally unfamiliar with Vista any kind of idea of what to expect. You can check it out for yourself at www.windowsvistatestdrive.com . Remember that you’ll need to open up Internet Explorer to use this.
