Windows Microsoft has released an interim build of Windows Vista, Build 5342, today to a select group of testers. This is the first build to come with the 'real' Aero Glass: fully scalable vector based transparencies that take advantage of pixel shading. The previous builds contained Aero Express and Aero Express with transparancy, not the real Aero Glass. Other notable improvements: a complete firewall, support for Pocket PC 2000, 2002, and 2003 synchronization, and more. Flexbeta has screenshots, but Flexbeta seems pretty down to me at the moment.

Maybe the issue is not whether it's "total shit", but whether it's going to be worth all the hype that's built up around it, and whether it's really going to wipe out OS X and Linux once and for all like so many of the regulars here seem to think. Maybe even whether the five years and tons of money and manpower they put into it makes it the best OS out there.
