Go now or wait? (WinSDK CTP)

    I'm holding off on installing the Windows SDK CTP based on Vista Feb 06 CTP
    onto a Windows XP computer as a development machine for WinFX learning and
    application testing, waiting in anticipation of and hopes for a newer Vista
    CTP and XP-installable Windows SDK pre-release.

    But there hasn't been any new WinSDK CTPs lately and I don't want to wait
    for Vista Beta 2 when they resync and re-release the SDK preview.

    What do you guys suggest? Bother with installation now and reinstall all in
    more than a month, or hold off?

    I'm not at all in a hurry on this, but I'm quite curious and impatient about
    testing app compatibility and tinkering with WinFX development, and I'm
    equally nervous about the stability and completeness of February's release.

  3. Andre is correct. The Windows SDK is working towards Beta 2 and won't have
    any interim builds of the SDK between Feb CTP and Beta 2.
