December Vista CTP Looms Large

December 18, 2005

Mary Jo Foley (over at Microsoft Watch) is now reporting that Vista Build No. 5270 will be the next CTP (Community Technology Preview) for Windows Vista. Based upon her inside sources, she’s hearing that this Build will be available on Monday or Tuesday.

So why do you care about the December CTP? Well, if your looking for the next beta, December CTP ain’t it. In fact, the next beta won’t be around for a couple of months. But there should be some additional improvements in the UI. In addition, there is inclusion of pen/tablet support. For me, this is one of the key functional milestones marking preparation for commercial release of Vista.

As the next few weeks unfold, I’ll see if I can get some insights from the Channel 9 crew. Maybe I can alert everyone to when the December Build gets some air time.
