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.

That happens so MS can claim the 'zip' standard is broken and introduce their new one.

...which will require Windows Vista, and on top of that, a very recent machine to run.
