Vista is looking to be shaping up quite nicely, with Microsoft's first release candidate having surfaced late last week. Both The Inquirer and WinSuperSite have checked it out in detail to see how things are going as far as compatibility and general performance goes, pretty damn good apparently!


The Inquirer:-

IT'S BEEN a while now since Microsoft released beta 2 of Windows Vista, and later this week they unleash Release Candidate 1. Never ones to rest on our laurels, we've taken the opportunity to test drive this version and decided to let you all in on what's new with build 5600, otherwise known as RC1.

First off, I'm not one for bothering with every interim build (frankly, I have a life and lately, new builds have escaped from the pen on almost a weekly basis) and so I ignored the pre-release candidate (5536) that was doing the rounds last week. In any case, build 5536 was only available in x86 format and I've been testing the x64 flavour, as I am today.
