New Windows XP build

New Windows XP build

After Bill Gates presented Windows XP and Office XP to the public the day before yesterday, Microsoft yesterday made a new version of Windows XP available for download to its beta testers. This version (2428) is still not the long-awaited Beta 2 but 'only' another so-called interim release.

Beta 2 is expected for the end of February. The new version already contains the new 'Luna' surface. Screenshots of this are already available from Paul Thurrot and Microsoft.

As with Windows 2000, Windows XP will have the option to register for the so-called 'Customer Preview Program' and for a few marks to the Beta and maybe even the RC version. If you are interested, you can register here.
