Windows Vista in NumbersS

One of the things Microsoft reiterated throughout Monday night's Vista launch was the amount of work and testing that went into Vista. Approximately 5 million beta testers checked out the OS to make sure everything ran smoothly. As far as drivers go, Vista comes with 1.5 million drivers out of the box, so the chances of your peripherals not being recognized are pretty slim. Release-wise, Vista is being rolled out in over 70 countries, 39,000 retail outlets, and thousands of OEMs. What does this all mean? Well, according to Microsoft it means there's no need to wait for that service pack. Vista should make everyone's life easier now. We're gonna take that with a grain of salt as we give Vista our own test run to see just how easier (or harder) it'll make life for us.
