If you have not seen or done anything with Windows Vista, and missed out on the closed Beta program; Microsoft is giving you a chance to get your hands on Windows Vista for about 1 year. You can download Windows Vista Beta 2 or order it on DVD, based on your connection speed you will most likely want to just order the DVD and be done with it.

The Get Ready site gives you a lot of good information on hardware requirements, and information about computers if you are in the market to buy one today what you will need to run Windows Vista.
