It’s been a while now since Microsoft released beta 2 of Windows Vista, and later this week they unleash Release Candidate 1. Never ones to rest on our laurels, we’ve taken the opportunity to test drive this version and decided to let you all in on what’s new with build 5600, otherwise known as RC1.
..Although not perfect, this release is a great improvement over earlier builds and for the first time ever, I can actually see them getting Vista finished in time for a January 2007 release.
