Yeah, it looks like they've removed the page now. Damn, I wish I'd taken a screengrab of it.

Hot on the heels of the Post-RC1 build comes the official RC2 of Vista! It looks like it's another limited download deal, so I'd grab it while it's hot...:D

Edit: ISO's aren't up yet. Sorry about that; I pulled the trigger too quickly. However, they should be up sooon.

Yikes, why all the hate? Sorry about the false posting, though...:o

(In my defense, this (http://img90.imageshack.us/img90/4520/rc2kc4.png) is what the page looked like when I first saw it...)

RC2 will be released to the public right?

Builds 5536, 5600 and 5728 were, and the RC2 download page looks highly similar to the DL pages for those builds. So Yes :D

Now what I am hoping for is nVidia to release updated RC2 drivers on their FTP, however I think it is only a 50/50 chance as RC1/Beta 2 were bigger releases than RC2. Many are saying this is only like a RC1 Tech Refresh rather than a real RC2. I guess we'll all know when it is released shortly :)

No it not up yet, Microsoft released Vista RC2 build 5744 to Connect site hours ago. I found one on torrent butit not complete, I am still stuck at 2.6% and also found one on newsgroup. Now I am downloading from newsgroup, hope I have all complete files.

I just read RC2 won't be released to the public.

Despite its previous statements to the contrary, on Friday Microsoft will be putting out a second release candidate of Windows Vista, sort of. According to Paul Thurrott, what Microsoft is calling "RC2" is the last pre-release build that will be seen before Vista's official release to manufacturers, but isn't anything more than an ordinary interim build. Unlike RC1, RC2 won't be a public release and will only be made available to Microsoft beta testers, and MSND and TechNet subscribers. According to Thurrott, there are currently 1,400 open bugs in Vista, but they're being closed fast, and Microsoft hopes to "finalize the product" between October 25 and November 8. By my calendar that's three to five until Vista is--dare I say it--finished.
