Microsoft to Skip Vista Beta 2

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 6:17 am

Redmond is planning to rely more on Community Technology Previews for Windows input, and has two new Vista test builds planned for the next two calendar quarters.

Customers and partners who’ve been holding their breath waiting for Beta 2 of Windows Vista before getting serious about testing Microsoft’s next-generation operating system can exhale.

There will be no single, catch-all Beta 2 of Vista, according to Jim Allchin, copresident of Microsoft’s Platform Products & Services Division in Redmond, Wa. Instead, Microsoft is planning to rely increasingly on Community Technology Preview (CTP) builds to get its feedback from Windows testers.
