Having nothing better to do after a wholesome lunch, I was idly browsing around the WWW when I happened to visit the Microsoft website and noticed this interesting tidbit:
Windows Vista Beta 2 is now available for IT professionals and developers with MSDN and TechNet subscriptions. In the coming weeks, Microsoft will start the Windows Vista Customer Preview Program (CPP) for developers and IT professionals who are not members of the subscription services.
The Windows Vista CPP will also be available to technology enthusiasts that want to install and test a copy of Windows Vista Beta 2. You can get a head start on your Windows Vista CPP preparation by visiting the Get Ready section of this site and downloading the Windows Vista Product Guide (60 MB Word doc).
MSDN is the Microsoft Developer Network – the portion of Microsoft responsible for managing the firm's relationship with developers; whereas TechNet is a platform that delivers comprehensive, no-nonsense technical resources that help IT professionals efficiently evaluate, deploy and support Microsoft solutions.
Now I am not a member of either but wouldn't mind being one ;)…Not that its a piece O' cake but let's not dwell on that matter! So I shall patiently wait till the much-awaited and much-delayed Vista makes it onto any of moi co-workers workstations or elsewhere. Enthu people can however check its features at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/
