Windows Vista Release Candidate coming

So how would you like to get your hands on a more recent build of Windows Vista?  If you're still using Beta 2, I would imagine you are ready for a refresh.  Well, it's coming.  According to Nick White at the Windows Vista team blog(,  you'll be able to get your hands on the goodies soon.

The key questions and answers are as follows:

  1. Will Microsoft open testing sign-ups again when RC1 is released?  Yes.
  2. Will the Customer Preview Program be available for those who missed out on Beta 2 to sign up and get RC1?  Yes.
  3. If I participated in Beta 2 by downloading a PID and the build, will I be able to participate in RC1 automatically?  Yes.

After you start running the RC1 fork of the code, you'll see the improvements that have been made.  Good stuff coming folks.
