Vista: Beta 2 Available

Wed, May 24, 2006, 12:12 PM under Windows | Vista
Windows Vista, the next Windows client Operating System is due to ship in the second half of 2006 (with wide availability straight after Christmas).
It was previously code named Longhorn and, in fact, the server edition will not be named Vista and it still carries the Longhorn code name until the new name is announced.

We've come a long way since the first taste at PDC and now you can get Beta 2 of Vista. This is the first *public* Beta (i.e. not just for MSDN subscribers) and millions of downloads are expected. If you haven't already, you better check Vista out because your customers/users/competitors certainly will!

I can personally vouch that Beta 2 is a great improvement over the February CTP (build 5308) as I've been "playing" with both recently...

Go get Build 5384.4
