Buzz: December Vista CTP arrives on Monday

Posted by David Hunter at 11:14 AM ET.

Paul Thurrott has the latest buzz on Community Technical Previews for Windows Vista:

Sources at Microsoft have told me that the eagerly-awaited December Community Technical Preview (CTP) build of Windows Vista will be delivered to beta testers on Monday. According to my sources, the CTP is build 5270…

Earlier this month, Microsoft promised two Vista deliverables for December. The first, the December CTP, is a dramatic improvement over previous CTPs and includes many new features. In late December, Microsoft will ship internally a feature-complete build of Windows Vista. That build will form the basis for the next CTP, due in January of February 2006. After that, the company will focus solely on bug fixes and fit and finish issues, and will not add any more major new features to the product.

You may recall that the promised November CTP was skipped in favor of a new Vista beta plan.
