CNET has a video review/preview if Microsoft Windows Vista Beta 2.
PC Magazine has put together a special report of Windows Vista Beta 2, which it calls a “critical milestone on the release plan”.
There’s a lot of attention being paid to this beta, (it’s being unveiled in Seattle at the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC)), because at this point the key features are pretty much locked in, and now it’s being tweaked and fixed in preparation for a launch either later this year or early next. Basically what you see now is going to be 95% of what you see when it launches, hence the interest.
Also, Microsoft is just weeks away from their general Customer Preview Program (CPP) release for Vista, where non-MSDN subscribers will be allowed to test it. You can read more about Vista here at Microsoft’s official website.
