that all "the people who are installing the latest build know exactly what they're doing".
Many of them will simply be installing it to see what it's like. You might be amazed at the number of calls my office gets from people wo have installed all manner of beta builds without any previous experience, or special knowledge.
"I think the people who are installing the latest build know exactly what they're doing."
Ah, the magic of the English language. I read your comments as, people know that they are taking incredible risks with Beta type downloads which could foul up their PC big time. Nonetheless they are prepared to go ahead.
The FE read it (I think) as, they know what they are doing taking the risk but consider themselves (usually incorrectly) as capable IT bods who can resolve any difficulties arising from the download.
The FEs advice is well made which, with my limited skill, I have not gone near the Vista trials, much though I would love to have a try. Incidentally, I do not suggest you are not extremely IT literate and capable of getting out of a tricky corner with Vista Beta.
unless you are a tecchie (like yours truly) and u know what you are doing, I would stay well clear of Vista in its testing stages. I had a friend of mine install (well at least try to install) Vista Beta 2 on her machine, suffice to say she didnt have a clue what she was doing and nearly killed her machine, lucky for her the installation didnt finish otherwise it would have been upto muggins here to sort out her own mess! That will teach her.
