I don’t think there has ever been so much hype over an operating system designed and developed by Microsoft since the release of Windows 95. Ever since the first project name was released to the internet there has been a huge interest in the development of this operating system. When the name was officially changed to Windows Vista and the first screenshots where made available to the public and the scale of people downloading of BETA 2 was so intense Microsoft had to pull the plug on downloading because there were so many people downloading. According to Microsoft sources Windows Vista RC1 is to be released on September the 7th 2006, although this is yet to be made official, and plans to release to manufacturers by late October...? Is great news to us all? But, I still believe in ticking all the boxes before rushing into a release of an operating system to RTM. We do not want to see another operating system being release by Microsoft full of security vulnerabilities again as we seen with Windows XP in 2001. I have added a screenshot of build 5506... Looks better every time there is a build released.
