you can download Vista Build 5744, which will be the last build made available to the public. Microsoft says that they got great feedback from users running Vista RC1. I myself have tried ran every publically released build of Vista, and while I must admit there are some improvements, I still found it to be a very frustrating experiance (more with so-called "features" than with bugs) and have now fully migrated to Linux (save for the occasional test of the latest Vista). Anyone here have any interesting experiances with past builds of Vista? Opinions on how it's turning out, on features? Any experiance with this build (obviously near the end of the thread...)?
