Vista RC2 Ships -- But to a Select Audience - October 06, 2006 -
As expected, Microsoft released what it terms Windows Vista Release Candidate 2 on Friday. The move was widely predicted after at least two Microsoft-focused Web sites jumped the gun and released information and links pointing to the download earlier in the week.
Good news is that you can download RC2 here: http://download.windowsvista.com/preview/rc2/en/download.htm
