Build 5472 is to be released by this weekend for Technical Beta Testers! ;-)

It is a "RC Tree" Build with improved performance and better resource management.

When I get to installing it, I will post screenshots.

I knew I was good for something :p

Seeing as though kr0z appears to be in the thick of it, I nominate him (in my wholy unofficial capacity of something or nothing in this case) as the best suited to provide feedback on the latest builds and schedules.

Oh - and is the pantless thing optional or mandatory?

Windows Vista 5472 (I hope it to be that build) will also feature updated Aero Tweaks. So more "fit and finish" coming in this new interim build.

My main AMD X2 Based system is on WinXP. But my Dell Latitude D810 laptop is on Vista. (-:

I plan on installing (more permanently) Windows Vista on my main PC when RC1 ships.

A short time ago interim build 5472.5 was released to beta testers.

It's noted to contain "significant" updates and fixes since beta 2 - including new nvidia drivers.

Already there is some positive feedback from beta testers. I will be installing this build tonight. Currently downloading at 160kb/sec, total download size for x86 and x64 is 6174.5 MB. 11 Hours to go. Screenshots will follow soon after install. I will also post a Mini Review of the build.

Sure. There are some quite visible UI tweaks and more "fit&finish" visible in this build.

Really looking forward to installing it tonight. I think I may actually let this build loose on my main PC - the AMD X2 etc..

I ran Beta 2 on 2 machines.

Had issues installing it on both. Had issues running it on both.

Both machines now run windows XP.
I am now buying a Mac.

LOL You made an Operating System choice on a beta product?!

I guess Microsoft didn't make it clear enough that the Preview was for tech savvy / expert users - and did not reflect the quality of a final product.

Enjoy your Mac.

Well, after a bit of playing around at uni, I'm still waiting for Microsoft to release the RC1 to the public. Don't know whether or not this will happen though :(

Yes RC1 will be released to the public - but - you will have to have been a Beta 2 purchaser and you will have to have installed and activated Beta 2 to be eligible to download RC1 when its available.

Microsoft Watch Article on Vista 5472.5
http://tinyurl.com/jmuhd

"Microsoft is distributing this in order to provide testers with a more recent build and to encourage application and device driver developers to accelerate development on Windows Vista," according to a statement provided by a company spokeswoman. "This build includes quality and performance improvements based on feedback Microsoft has received on Beta 2 to date."

The new build does not include any major changes to the Vista feature set or user interface, said Mike Burk, a Windows client product manager. It consists primarily of bug fixes; tweaks to the User Account Control functionality to make it "less chatty"; and stability/performance improvements, especially around Media Center, Burk said.

Burk said the primary reason Microsoft rolled out Build 5472 was to make available to a wider set of testers -- specifically, MSDN subscribers -- "something post-Beta 2." MSDN subscribers should be able to download the code by July 18 or 19, Burk said.

What are your machine specs?

And what is your system score in Vista? Screenshot? Just saw the screenshot!
So they have made a change to that section have they?
