It seems like reality that Windows Vista may be released on time (early 2007), with the release of Release Candidate 1 to their Customer Preview Program (CPP) users. These are users who registered with Microsoft back in June, when beta 2 was made publicly available. You'll most likely find that RC1 is made available to the public shortly or, if you can find a CPP member, they might help you obtain your serial code.
The best news is that Windows Vista is usable, with many of the bugs found in beta 2 squashed and some impressive speed improvements. That's not all, Microsoft state that ¨we’ve made some UI adjustments, added more device drivers, and enhanced performance. We’re not done yet, however - quality will continue to improve¨. All good news.
For more information about the Microsoft Windows Vista RC1, visit the Personal Computer World homepage, for a brief overview. If you're an existing Microsoft CPP user, head to the download page and grab the ISO along with your serial code. As always, let us have your feedback on the Release Candidate.
