They'll be available along with the beta 1 version of Windows Vista, the next-generation Windows formerly known as Longhorn, which Microsoft announced friday morning.

Right, the GUI will stay under wraps until Beta 2. Beta 1 is targeted at developers and IT professionals and will have around 1/3 of the planned featureset.

Right. That's worth pointing out again - beta is mainly for IT pros and developers, it won't include a lot of stuff that will appear in later betas. It's almost like that HEC build.

btw, I think I read somewhere that Microsoft won't show Aero until as late as RC1. Don't know if this still holds true.

Doesn't beta generally mean feature complete?
