Windows Vista build 5231 x64 full version
Windows Vista will replace Windows XP as the operating system of choice in little over a year if Microsoft can stick to its schedule. Vista, good or bad, will have a huge impact due to Microsoft's dominance. So the question is, are they heading in the right direction? Let's try and figure that out in what is the first of two articles on Vista. Here we will focus on the interface and built in applications. Part two will focus on performance, compatibility, and the framework of the system.DISCLAIMER: Windows Vista Build 5231 is not even considered beta software, rather it is a community Technology Preview release. This means, among other things, that a lot should change before the final release. Hopefully a lot of the issues that I'm about to bring up will be addressed and stability should be at least up to par with Windows XP by the time they send this to consumers. A word to the wise, while I have advocated playing with various pieces of beta software, this isn't one of them. Besides limited availability, this build has serious stability and compatibility issues. Vista BasicsWindows Vista sprung from the Windows Server 2003 code base. Well, the current iteration of it has anyway. It appears that the original, much delayed Vista code base got so out of hand that Microsoft scrapped it and started again with their best operating system to date. Probably not such a bad thing in the end, but it did lead to them cutting several high profile features, most notably WinFS. The all program feature has been changed as you can clearly see WinFS was to be the the way we found and dealt with files. Seems Apple has beaten Microsoft to the punch once again. While not a system wide feature, Apple's latest professional application, Aperture, uses a SQL database to manage RAW image files. They've integrated it cleverly, improving performance while getting rid of the need to ever deal with files and versions. Vista will likely ship with a whole pile of versions just like XP (Home, Pro, Tablet, Media Center). In addition it looks like they will have separate 32-bit and 64-bit versions, a real downer compared to Apple's OS X. Hopefully Microsoft will play it smart with upgrades and the retail versions and have a single disc with everything on it; otherwise it could get pretty crazy. You want to see some pictures though right? Well get prepared for the next page where the new interface gets a once over.
Build 5231 (build date of October 4, 2005), also known as CTP2 or the October 2005 CTP, was released to MSDN subscribers and Microsoft Beta Testers on October 17, 2005. This "Ultimate" build introduced Windows Media Player version 11. An updated volume control utility has been added, that can control the volume level of every running program.
Release Candidate 2 (RC2) (built on October 3, 2006 with a build number of 5744.16384), was released to CPP members, TAP testers, MSDN/Technet subscribers, and other technical beta testers on Friday, October 6, 2006, and was available for download until October 9. Because of an aggressive development schedule, this was the final build that would be officially released to the general public for testing. Nevertheless, all pre-release product keys will work until the final RTM build. Several testers reported that RC2 was faster and more stable than build 5728. However, because RC2, which was a regular interim build, and not a major milestone as the name suggests, was not as rigorously tested as RC1, RC1 may have been more stable in certain situations. This build fixed many compatibility issues that plagued previous builds. Vista's GUI, which continued to be improved, contained some minor tweaks, one of the more prominent of which was the new ability to customize the color, but not the transparency, of maximized windows. In previous builds, windows became predominantly black when maximized, an effect that could not be altered by users. A Control Panel icon for Windows Sideshow was also added.
