    Is there any truth in the stories circulating that there was a newer "trunk
    build 60" released to beta testers to fix major memory leak issues with
    build 5308.11 (build 5308 trunk 11)?

  5. Well... Andre's right to some degree yeh, however a .60 release was set on
    Connect a few days after the original .17 release because some people had
    major troubles installing onto partitions and having general errors with
    Setup - so yeh that's the main reason why they re-released it because
    simply, a lot of people couldn't even install it.

    Pretty much no performance issues will be made until Beta 2/April CTP.

    Thanks Zack & Andre,

    I gave up with build 5270 as I couldn't get it installed onto a dual-boot
    partition with XP with error after error during install.

    I managed to get build 5308.17 installed at about the 3rd attempt, so .60
    will be of no benefit to me if I've read your info correct.

    I thought I read that .60 may sort out some of the memory-leak issues which
    are causing this build to be so slow, even on a high-spec machine.

    Thanks.

    John

    Hi Guys
    Is there a site where a person can download Vista ?
    Is the beta version free for download.
    Just trying to learn about Beta versions.
    Thanks

    The only site where you can download Vista betas legally is MSDN /
    Microsoft Connect.
    Every non-Microsoft site allowing you to download Vista should not
    exist, well, they're not authorized.
    The beta is "free", it just needs you to have a MSDN subscription
    including MS OSes (which is not free, of course)

  10. You obtain it through the following channels:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/subscriptions/
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/abouttn/subscriptions/default.mspx

    I don't know about discounts, that was Windows XP, this is Windows Vista,
    times change.

    The April CTP should be a Public release which should be available under
    Customer Preview Program free of charge or at a nominal fee for those who
    want to receive it on media. I am sure some time during the beta and leading
    up to and after RTM, there will be numerous online web cast discussing
    Windows Vista. So, you just have to be patient.
