Dear Longhorn / Windows Vista Beta Tester,
We are pleased to announce that build 5472 of Windows Vista is available for your testing! This build contains numerous fixes since build 5456 and demonstrates significant progress on customer feedback since Beta 2. Most notably a new Nvidia driver has fixed many reported issues and recent changes should provide improved Windows Media Center performance. You should be aware though that this is an interim build and while significant testing is always done, it has not undergone the rigorous testing that Beta 2 did. We believe that most people will find this build improved but as with any interim you may encounter issues we do not yet know about. Please move up to this build from any previous build and tell us about any problems you encounter.
What we ask that you do with this build: ...
Your previous keys from package [5342 and Up] will continue activate Ultimate edition and your Beta 2 keys for Home, Home Premium, and Business will continue to work. Please remember that you may request 3 Ultimate keys and 1 Home/Premium Premium/Business and each key will activate 5 distinct machines and that your activations are reset with each new build you install.
Release Notes ...
With each build we move closer to our goal and always want to hear what you think!
The Longhorn/Windows Vista Beta Team
