Windows Vista Resource Kit released


Just saw this on the Windows Vista Team Blog.  The Windows Vista Resource Kit is THE definitive guide to all things Vista.  Weighing in at 1,568 pages (and 5.3 lbs), this book weighs more than many notebook computers.  Good Times!

The official MS Press site for the book (linking to resellers) is: http://www.microsoft.com/mspress/books/9536.aspx
