Our favorite people over at Microsoft have a new pre release candidate for Windows Vista. Since the build is only available to the first 100,000 downloads, I decided to grab it as soon as I could rather than waiting for the actually release candidate. I downloaded it using the wget –referrer switch so that I could trick the Microsoft website into thinking I was coming from a referring URL. Once the download finished, I went ahead and loaded it up in VMWare.
Here are some screen shots of some areas of Windows Vista that I will further discuss and delve into later.
