Betzie You're using a very old build now.

Wait until RC1 is released to the public then try that build. There have been a lot of improvements - specially in recent builds like build 5472.5.

I ran the beta, but I see no point in upgrading to it now or in the future. The only thing i can see windows Vista being better for me is wireless support, as XP SP2 is a hack really and has some issues.

That's my 2c

So I guess you're not a gamer? Fair enough.
I really like the way wireless networking is implemented in Vista - specially in post beta 2 builds of Vista.

I think you may want to give Vista another chance when RC1 is released - you may be pleasantly surprised.

What build did you receive? Was it Beta 2?

If so I can assure you that the build I'm currently testing is many times better than beta 2 - I think you will be impressed with RC1 when its released!



Nah, the build we got at uni was the RC1 build, Build 5472.5 I think.

Hopefully, the public will get a taste with RC1 soon =)

sora3 5472.5 is not yet an RC1 build, its just a post beta 2 build (which is why on the desktop it says "Beta 2".

RC1 is due at the end of August, all going well.

Ah, just confirmed with the guys, sorry about the mixup kr0z.

At least the 5472.5 is a great build. Hope they don't stuff it up for RC1 =)

Seems from the news I have. Case of 'Believe it or not' - I can't provide sources. Sorry. But...

Windows Vista will ship to OEM's and Corporate Customers in November. No more delays for Windows Vista!

However... {There is always a 'however'} The retail version of Vista will be available in January - not earlier. Simply, it takes a long time to print enough boxes! :-)

Saw these two very interesting posts on /. that pointed to two APC blogs posts.

First is an interview with a MS tech that describes how "the install DVD is actually a preinstalled copy of Windows that simply gets decompressed onto your PC" and is hardware agnostic:

Second is how to customise this image, much like using nLite with XP:

Most of the comments I have seen on those articles point out how MS has 'invented' what tarballs have being doing for so long now. I would have to say I agree.

They would be better off putting that into development I think.

But unless Microsoft spends up on Marketing and educating people about Vista - you may have some dodgy company like novell trying to convince you that SLED is your next desktop operating system - *grin*

Cheers iamthemaxx

Actually it seems that Microsoft has released a new build of Windows Vista for Technology Adoption Partners and OEM's - Build 5483. This is the first build to be tagged as "RC1".

That's all for now.

Some screenshots from a Russian web site.

I had high hopes for the unattended and integration/slipstream process to be a lot more refined :(
