Love-him-hate-him Paul Thurrot has released a four part in-depth review of Vista’s December CTP. “I think people are going to be surprised by how good the Windows Vista December 2005 Community Technical Preview (CTP, or build 5270) really is. After years of painful delays and an uncertain couple of months since the last CTP, Microsoft shipped a near-feature-complete Vista build to testers this week, and the prognosis is extremely positive.

In this review, I’ll examine those new features, and the features that have changed since the previous CTP, build 5231” Part 1 | 2 | 3 | 4.
