    Microsoft To Release New Vista Beta This Week



    The new beta will be less of a resource hog than the existing software, which is now nine weeks old, Microsoft says.

    Microsoft this week plans another Vista beta 2 drop that is promised to hog fewer system resources.

    At Microsoft's Velocity 2006 worldwide partner conference in Boston Tuesday, a Microsoft executive said the updated beta will be available to Technet subscribers "in a few days."

    "Vista in its beta form is pretty taxing on the system. It's slow and a little non-responsive," said Mike Sievert, corporate vice president of Windows client marketing at Microsoft.

    "That piece of software is now about nine weeks old and that may not sound like a lot but at this stage, that's an old version in software terms."

    "You'll see a huge difference [in performance]," Sievert said of the interim release, noting Microsoft is recommending 512 Megabytes of memory when testing the new code.

    It is another interim beta release since Vista Beta 2 was announced at Microsoft's Windows Hardware Engineering Conference in May. Beta 2 was made available broadly via the customer preview program in early June.

    The Window Vista Enterprise Edition is set to ship to volume licensed customers in November and all other Vista business and consumer ediitons will be available to the broad channel and consumers in January of 2007.

    Partners and customers have said Vista is very resource intensive and claim that most PCs -- even those just two to three years old -- won't run the new Windows operating system.

    "One thing that's different about Vista is that it's hardware aware and scales itself based on available hardware. A great example [of this] is the Aero user experience part of the Premium version," Sievert said, noting that the user interface feature is self-enabled. "It's a way to allow Vista to provide richer and more immersive experiences."

    Seeing as there was an interim build released not even 2 weeks ago, I doubt there is another one on the way already.
    Unless they mean they are going to release 5456 to the public.

    It is good to hear that the Next Release will be a CTP Release rather than an Interim Release, just FYI. I believe that the word Tech Net is a Typo, however, because only MSDN Tester's are Allowed to Download Windows Vista Beta Releases, Tech Net Plus Tester's must wait until they receive the CTP in the Mail, and Regular Tech Net Tester's do NOT get Windows Vista CTP's at all.

  6. Kevin;
    I think it interesting that when you get a Vista build as well as other
    people, you seem to feel to many are getting it.
    When you do not get a build, you seem to think more should get the build.
    Your distribution suggestions of any build in Vista seem to revolve around
    you.
    Buty then I have not heard you comment about some recent builds of the last
    few weeks.
