Vista Build 5728 Available

Vista Build 5728 (which is of course after RC1) can be downloaded from here for a limited time. As per Microsoft, this build has improvements from RC1 but has not gone through the same regression testing as a RC or Beta, and it might not work in some situations.

Furthermore, Microsoft also highlights:

This build may not have the same level of support or servicing via Windows Update, and you may not be able to upgrade to the final version of Windows Vista.

(Thanks to fellow Avanut Ken Scahefer for pointing out the link for this one.)

Update: This build has some new backgrounds and a new start up animation (if that interests you). Matt has been running this build for a few days without any issues. Below is how the branching is working internally within Microsoft for Vista; you can read more about what this means here.

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
