Windows Vista work is progressing and generating a lot of interest in the IT-Pro community. Therefore I want to draw your attention to this English-language TechNet site as we just released the WindowsVista December Community preview. A key new feature in this new release is the new advanced security features alongside progress on the new user-interface (Aero). More news about the consumer-side of Windows Vista (Media-Center and Media Player) will become public at the CES trade-show Jan 5-8.
For more Information click here (TechNet resources) or here (December Community preview).
P.S.: Some advertising - pls. remember that all Microsoft TechNet subscribers automatically get their Windows Vista Betas (like the Dec. Community preview) shipped as part of their subscription while the Beta will only be available publicly later next year.
