Windows "Microsoft has just released the latest installment of the Windows Vista pre-RC1 builds, with Vista Build 5472.5 making its way to TAP and Tech Beta tester today, and for once, MSDN Subscribers too. Build 5472.5 is a standard FRE Staged build, only available in English at the moment, though Arabic, Japanese, and German builds may follow. At this point all the builds we are seeing seem to undergoing severe stages of heavy optimization: although faster code normally comes at the expense of larger files as a rule of thumb, this build of Windows Vista packs a punch performance-wise, but is only a 100 MB larger than its predecessor.

nice point steve ;)

Also to the guy complaining that he "enevitibly has to fix their XP pc's" well i hate to say it but thats the one reason i like vista... makes spyware a thing of the past atleast in my family my mother and brother both were spyware ridden in XP but after moving them onto vista and telling them "dont click "allow" on anything that you don't know what it is and the rest has been smooth sailing not 1 virus or spyware installed since i switched them over 2-3 months ago.
