if they haven't submitted a bug for previous builds then they are SOL, and won't receive the final version.

Ok now please answer these questions:

1. Were you invited to Beta Test Windows Vista and joined Connect?

Yes? Go to Question 2.

No? You do not get a copy of Windows Vista RTM.

2. Did you log at least 1 Bug?

Yes? You get Windows Vista RTM.

No? You do not get Windows Vista RTM.

Damn it! I always voted and gave feedback on bugs but never filed one myself!

Hopefully they'll see that!

I experienced very few bugs to be honest. Those that I did had already been logged so I voted and gave feedback. Is this not of importance? meh. Not looking for handouts anyways.

Quesiton 1: I recieved an email in September saying that I could test the RC1 of Vista, Microsoft office 2007 and Longhorn Server. if i remember correctly then I recieved this email several days before the RC1 was released. I had already been registered with Connect and ive filled out the Scenario voting site nearly complete and ive reported 4 or 5 bugs so far. i reported most of them last week but one was two days ago so im not sure if ill get it...

I got in the program in March, and already got my e-mail and access to download the build. So to the guy that said that you had to be testing since beta 1 to get this build, you?re wrong.

Could it be something to do with the country you are situated in? I'm in NZ, and I still haven't got mine. :(

Yes for the love of god

If you didn't START beta testing when beta 1 started AND submit one bug report.

YOU WILL NOT GET A COPY

Some people need to get over it and hope to be invited to test the next OS or Service pack 1 for Vista.

Incorrect. You can get it if you started beta testing from beta 2 + at least one bug report.

Can they be transferred to another person? :p

Congrats to those who submitted a bug report. :) I didn't really have a system to use it on extensively during the beta. It doesn't matter though, I don't mind paying for it when it comes out.

Planning on building a new PC before Vista comes out ... then I'll buy it ...
