I am very happy with Windows Vista RC1. I have found these aspects to be improved since previous builds,
1. Speech recognition- improved understanding of user commands since other builds I have tried.
2.Compatibility- I know vista is still a beta or release candidate but I have noticed that some programs I have tried to install on previous builds to no avail work on RC1.
I am dissapointed at Microsoft removing selected widgets from the 5536/5600 RC1 build of Vista which were present in previous builds e.g 5472.
Apart from some pop-ups telling me Windows Live messenger has stopped working when everything is working fine I am happy with RC1. Come on Vista!
