Windows Vista RC2 Comes On Friday !


According to Paul Thurrot, Microsoft plans to ship the final pre-release version of Windows Vista this Friday. Unexpectedly, Microsoft will name the release as Release Candidate 2 (RC2). Previously, Microsoft had publicly asserted that it would not ship an RC2 milestone release of Windows Vista. But don't let the name fool you: RC2 is really just a standard interim build of Vista and will not be given out to millions of users as was RC1.

The RC2 build is 5743, and Microsoft is currently testing it internally. As with the previous interim build, 5728, RC2 will be given out to beta testers, MSDN and TechNet subscribers, and a random, limited selection of Consumer Preview Program (CPP) members.

Windows Vista Build 5487 Screenshots Released  - 2nd August 2006

    Wednesday Winfuture.de, a German Windows enthusiast site, released a slew of screenshots of the recently aquired 5487 build of Windows vista.

It appears that the new task bar and sidebar have still yet to have been included, but you will notice a few changes here and there. The welcome screen appears to have been overhauled with many new features adding an "Offers from Microsoft" panel which gives quick access to many new Windows Live services such as Messenger, Mail Center (still currently known as Mail Desktop Beta) and OneCare.

Another thing you will spot is a slightly tuned interface in Media Center, nothing big as it appears they just tweaked the drop shadows and a few graphics.

Although the new sidebar didn't make an appearance in this build, some redesigned gadgets did. The system performance and weather gadget have been redesigned as well as the stocks gadget.

Last but not least is the new voice recognition feature (or after a bad performance at a Microsoft Conference last week, voice wreck-ognition may be a more appropriate term.) Voice recognition allows you to control the system and take notes by using audio commands which the system recognizes.
