Default In Regards to TheMajor's post

Microsoft slammed an article by Australian technology publication Smart House on Friday, calling it "speculation." The retort came as a result of a story that cited sources within the company saying as much as 60 percent of Vista code needs to be rewritten.

The article claimed that the Redmond company had to transfer developers from the Xbox team to the Windows division in order to ensure the Vista makes it to a CES 2007 release. Much of the article centered on issues with the Media Center and multimedia functionality, and claimed Intel was assisting Microsoft in rushing out the new code.

Relatively unknown outside Australia before this week, Smart House made waves in the blogosphere and throughout the Apple enthusiast community with a story on Tuesday. In that article, the publication cited an unnamed BenQ executive as saying among Taiwanese manufacturers, the existence of an Apple "iPhone" is "common knowledge."

"This is speculation with no demonstrable basis in fact," a Microsoft spokesperson told BetaNews on Friday. "There aren't any Xbox developers moving over to the Windows Vista team," he said, disputing the core premise of the story.

Representatives with Intel could not be reached for comment.

Microsoft said that Vista is "feature complete," which means that the code writing process is basically over. "The next phase of development focuses on security, testing and fit/finish - not writing new code," the spokesperson added.

The company also reiterated its prior shipping targets -- to business in November, and consumers in January 2007.

The Download is now available vis-√*-vis Microsoft Connect under the downloads page. More good news, Build 5342 is once again available for both X86 and X64 users.

So whats new you ask? Heres what; this new build features huge improvements to stability, performance and overall usability. Also in this build are some new tweaks in the UI along with Media Center.

You can already get side bars for XP.

I Dual Boot Vista and XP on my Main machine all the time. If you are familiar with Beta software and the time it takes to tweak it then i would say go ahead. But if this is your first experience with Beta Software then i wouldnt risk it.

BusinessWeek is reporting that Microsoft's next release of Internet Explorer, version 7, will not be integrated into Windows. Breaking nearly ten years of tradition, Internet Explorer was always very tightly integrated into Windows, allowing users to do such things as launch a website directly from any Windows Explorer window, or save a live web page as the desktop wallpaper.
