Windows Vista Build 5342 Due Today

According to bink.nu who cites an unknown Microsoft Employee from the Windows Vista Newsgroups, a new build of Windows Vista is due today.

 

Paul Thurrott has confirmed the build as 5342 and release date over on his FAQ for Vista pages.

 

The new build is expected to be released to testers on connect later today and MSDN subscribers.

 

Windows Vista suffered its latest delay this week as Microsoft announced Vista will not be available for OEM's and Retail outlets until January 2007. This huge set back and re-organisation of the Windows Client Division will cause significant issues for OEM's and Businesses.

 

Even though Windows Vista Business Editions are due to be available in November 2006 many corporations outsource their PCs to suppliers like Fujitsu Siemens, IBM or Dell which preload Windows Versions onto their machines. For the corporations that image base deploy internally this shouldn't be a big set back but it will be interesting to see what the Christmas sales figures are for new PCs this year.
