dltv logo

Another week brings another glorious DL.TV to my screen! This week, Patrick and Robert discuss the official launch of Microsoft Windows Vista, and PC Mag’s review-which gave it a 3.5 out of 5, by the way. They discuss that most people will get their first copies by buying new PCs with it pre-installed, but upgrading might not be the smartest option quite yet. Also, they slash some Vista lies, and talk about some of the good things about the new OS. It’s all about Vista on this episode!
