Microsoft To Release New Windows Vista Build This Week

July 13th, 2006 by Patrick S

Microsoft this week plans another Vista beta 2 drop that is promised to hog fewer system resources.

At Microsoft’s Velocity 2006 worldwide partner conference in Boston Tuesday, a Microsoft executive said the updated beta will be available to Technet subscribers “in a few days.”

“Vista in its beta form is pretty taxing on the system. It’s slow and a little non-responsive,” said Mike Sievert, corporate vice president of Windows client marketing at Microsoft.

“That piece of software is now about nine weeks old and that may not sound like a lot but at this stage, that’s an old version in software terms.”

“You’ll see a huge difference [in performance],” Sievert said of the interim release, noting Microsoft is recommending 512 Megabytes of memory when testing the new code.
