AS I just found out, the preview will only support Vista SP2 or higher. So now I reboot into Vista to check it out. :groan:

Remember this preview is geared towards developers wanting to check out IE9 functionality in regards to HTML5, CSS, & Javascipt. It has no "chrome" (i.ie IE UI) so navigation is clumsy and other controls non-existant.

There are supposed to be updates released every 8 weeks. No indication yet when an actual beta with chrome will be available.

Like I said, it's only a PEEK inside. Loaded it OK in Vista and was an interesting look into what they are doing.
