Yet again, another pre-beta version of Windows Vista
Service Pack 1 has been leaked to the public. So, what's different in this version compared to the last leak?
Well first, this version carries a build tag of 6.0.6001.16633.longhorn.070803-1655
. Unlike v.165 which was integrated with Vista RTM into an ISO image, v.249 is now a standalone installer and weighs approximately 684 MB. This does not require a clean install for those users running the RTM version. The setup wizard requires several reboots and atleast 30 minutes for installation.
Besides bug fixes, overall v.249 does not differ much from the last leak. However, users claim this version to be buggier and not as stable as the last leak.
