    Microsoft issues patch for Vista OS build

    I couldn't believe my eyes when I found an article stating that MS has issued a patch for an operating system still under development. -Trip

    Microsoft Corp. has issued a patch for a preliminary version of its Vista OS for the same graphics-rendering problem that raised concerns about current versions of the Windows OS earlier this month. The patch applies to a Community Technology Preview (CTP) of Vista released in December, a version available to Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) Universal subscribers and beta testers, according to Microsoft's Web site. Vista isn't due for a general release to the public until later this year.

      It's interesting that they weren't even going to release the patch for XP ahead of the monthly schedule because they didn't consider it a major threat. Now MS obviously consider it such a threat they are releasing a patch for a beta product! Just goes to show you can never beleive what MS tell you. :x

      Can't be that much new code in Vista if they have managed to port over vulnerabilities from other products!
