According to the Symantec report, "Microsoft has removed a large body of tried and tested code and replaced it with freshly written code, complete with new corner cases and defects. This may provide for a more stable networking stack in the long term, but stability will suffer in the short term."

This is obviously surprising for Microsoft employees, who have declared so many times that Vista would be more secure than XP. Microsoft answered by a simple explanation that the software is still in beta stage and that numerous improvements would be made until it comes out.

Read the rest. He means that if you install Vista unless a Approved M$ person works on your PC you wont be able to uninstall it.

That is totally false. Plain and simple htey couldnt do that and wouldnt do that. They couldnt afford to send out a M$ Tech everytime someone wanted to format their PC. That is just way too much $$ to do any way you look at it.

When we said early this week, we we're not expecting it to be this early. Just minutes ago eager testers were surprised as Windows Vista build 5472 was released on Microsoft Connect.

As always, the build is currently available in both X64(64-bit) which is approximately 3.5GB in size, and X86(32-bit) which is just over 2.5GB.

The download is available to connect testers only and is not publicly available as a CPP. Testers have been told that 5342 keys will work with this build and no new keys are required.

Many of the people that have seen previous screenshots of upcoming builds have been wanting to get their hands on the wallpaper shown within them. You can now download that wallpaper Here courtesy of Utakz' Blog.

A screenshot gallery of the new build will be available within the next couple of hours.

Does that mean I need to re download Vista and install it again (on a formatted partition) to update it?

If you are a Official Beta Tester that was in the progra before it was released to the Public then yes. But if you got it when it was released to the Public then no. This is for the people that were in the Beta before it went public and it was only available to them.

Well technically it was only supposed to be available to them. But it has leaked to the net and the Public Keys work for it. So if you know how to obtain it then you can use it.

Ahh, you get the wrong end of the stick, I don't want to have to redownload Vista and install it again.
