    Also good to see they are within the 57xx range as that has been set aside for RTM releases :)

    Did they fix the screensaver yet? I loved the simplicity of the "Windows Logon" screensaver in Beta 2 (and earlier), all releases since have a stupid new animation in the screensaver. I complained but I doubt anyone at Microsoft listened.

    This release is currently available only to technical beta testers. When you logon to Connect you will be able to access the downloads if you are included in the technical testing.

    Dunno, still looking at this one.

    A few issues still, I see a few changes, changes to UAC quite interesting, still trying to put my finger on the difference.

    It seems like anyone can get this build at the moment.

    Updated Test Build Available (September 2006): Microsoft is looking for volunteers to help test an updated, interim release of Windows Vista. This build (5728) has a number of improvements and updates from RC1, but has not been put through the same internal testing process as RC1. We are making this release available for a limited time only in order to get broad distribution and testing in a variety of PC configurations. Click here http://download.windowsvista.com/preview/rc1/en/download-5728.htm if you are interested in testing this release.

    With this build are you able to just upgrade from rc1 within vista itself with the new installation disk or do you have to do a complete new install?

    Anybody finding problems with ATI drivers and Creative Labs drivers. with 5600 there was no problems with the RC1 drivers from ATI and the beta drivers from Creative for my sound card. But since the release of 5728 there is a major issue with these drivers causing mayhem.

    Anybody else experiencing the same problems.

    Thanks
    James

    I noticed there has been some changes to the initial loading to the desktop for the first time. and there are some changes being made to the Help and support looks like this has now been completed.

    There are some tell tail signs of changes but, it's difficult to work out what has been changed.

    Oh one thing... is it just me or does anybody else have no Microsoft logo or Windows logo loading whilst the OS is loading...? With XP you get the status bar loading and a Windows Logo with Windows XP but on Vista I don't see anything.
