Windows Vista 5472 Released -- With New Wallpaper

Microsoft has released Windows Vista 5472 to the Technical Beta participants, which means this one is still not available to the general public. The build ID is “5472.5.winmain_idx01.060713-1900″ which means it was just compiled on July 13, so this is a pretty recent version.

The ISO image is still about the same size as it has been in the past: 32-bit is 2,629.0MB and the 64-bit is 3,545.53 MB. The original keys that Microsoft gave out for build 5342 (Beta 2) will still work with this build which can be downloaded from Microsoft Connect (NOTE: you must be a Technical Beta participant to have access to Microsoft Connect).

The image above is a picture of the new Vista wallpaper that is available in 5472. You can download the full-size image (1600 x 1200) by clicking here or on the image above. I think it is the best Vista wallpaper yet.
