New Betas from Microsoft

At Microsoft's Windows Hardware Engineering Conference, officials announced a number of new betas. This includes beta 2 versions of Windows Vista and Windows Server "Longhorn." Both are now available to people with MSDN or TechNet subscriptions. These will both be available to people without these subscriptions in the next few weeks.

Also available is beta 2 of the 2007 Microsoft Office System. You can obtain a preview version of this beta from http://www.microsoft.com/office/preview.

Of even greater interest, WinFX enters a second beta. More importantly, Microsoft also announced a Go Live license for WinFX. This license includes Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). More importantly, it allows you to deploy applications today that use WPF, Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), and InfoCard.
