Vista News
PC Advisor states: If you want something done properly, do it yourself, so the saying goes. And Microsoft has done just that when testing beta versions of the upcoming Windows Vista operating system.

We'd recommend you don't leave the seat cover down but it looks like it doesn't have one, so instead you'll just have to fret about whether this will teach your dog that it's cool to lap from the dirty ponds in your home.
