A new build of Vista appeared on connect late yesterday, and first reports of it are promising.
Ryan Hoffman of Bink.nu had this to say: "I've gotten Windows Vista Build 5472 loaded up on my Tablet PC, and so far so good! It feels fast. I mean, really fast. The new blue basic theme is in. The new Aero cursor theme is enabled by default. Did I mention, this build is really fast?"
At the moment I haven't got it downloaded, I'll report back on my findings later today after I get it all installed and what-not. In the meantime heres a gallery of screenshots uploaded by Ryan. It features the new Aero Basic Theme, which looks quite tight compared to the scrap metal feel which is now gone. Did I mention Scrap metal feel is gone!?
