Microsoft Windows Vista RC1 – It’s here!

September 6, 2006 at 12:24 pm (Technology)

Back in June, I posted that I am running Windows Vista beta with Office 2007 beta.

It’s time to change now, change to the Release Candidate version of Windows Vista Operating system. For those who can’t wait to download the RC version, please visit the Vista space at The Vista Web at itself is pretty neat. It’s sort of gives you a feel of the UI you would be seeing in the Vista OS. The rich Avolnish color schemes and the AJAX-like Navigation interface let’s you sail through smoothly through the whole website.

This is how the site looks like…

This is what the Vista Team blog says about the Vista RC1:

To the TechBeta community:

It’s official — Windows Vista RC1 is done!

We could not have achieved this milestone without your support. The quantity and quality of feedback and data we received from you has been essential to helping us progress. Thus we wanted you to be the first customers outside of Microsoft to get access to the bits. Next week, a broader set of technical customers will get them via MSDN and TechNet. But you’re the first! We wanted to get it into your hands asap so you can start giving us feedback right away.

You’ll notice a lot of improvements since Beta 2. We’ve made some UI adjustments, added more device drivers, and enhanced performance. We’re not done yet, however — quality will continue to improve. We’ll keep plugging away on application compatibility, as well as fit and finish, until RTM. If you are an ISV, RC1 is the build you should use for certifying your application.

The operating system is in great shape with RC1, but there’s still a lot of testing to do. You’ve come through for us so far, and I’m asking you to once again put the pedal to the metal and send us feedback. Windows Vista is going to touch hundreds of millions of lives all around the world. Thanks for everything you’re doing to help us give them the best experience possible.


As you would have heard already there are five different editions of Windows Vista OS which is claimed to be designed to fit the way you intend to use your computer.
