Windows Microsoft has released a preview release candidate for Windows Vista SP1 to a large group of beta testers. The RC preview beta [ed. note: release candidate preview beta?], which was released late Nov. 14 and includes changes to the setup and installation experience made as a result of tester feedback, was made available to 15000 pre-selected beta testers, just 3000 more than the first beta. Additionally, Microsoft has released a new build of Windows Server 2008.

This makes me sad, slipstream is not possible. ;) I don't want to apply SP1 after installing Vista. That's a waste of time.

I guess I'll *cough* download *cough* the official slipstreamed image.

Why can't they just release this image for free? We already use product activation. If bandwidth is a problem, why not torrent it?
