VistaHelp.ca was born in June 2006. I had been playing with Windows Vista Beta versions since the September 2005 Longhorn Beta 1 release. When the Vista Beta 2 version was released to MSDN subscribers I installed it on a test computer. I loved it. It was still a Beta program and had bugs but the potential was there. I spend a lot of time helping others in online communities with Windows XP so extending this to include Vista was a given. I decided the time was right to start VistaHelp.ca.
This web site was created on a computer running beta versions of the following software: Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Expression Web Designer, and Microsoft Office 2007 Beta. It is an ongoing experiment to see how productive I can be with beta software and also to test the beta software.
