spent this weekend getting Vista on my main dev machine. did x86 and am still having a heck of a time finding drivers. as well as fighting with some apps, including some of my custom apps. have been having fun messing around with System.Speech and SAPI 5.3 (will start posting soon). now i need the Speech Server beta dev environment to make its way to Vista so i can keep kicking that around.
NOTE the MCE extender functionality to an XBox 360 has improved a ton. it was killing me in RC2, so i was really expecting it to still suck at RTM ... but it's working great so far. much better than it was working for me with MCE 2005. serious, lack of DivX/XviD is about the only end-user complaint i've got left.
