Vista released to customers

Find it on MVLS

IT SEEMS Microsoft has released the long awaited Windows Vista to a selection of its larger customers.

If you're a Microsoft Volume License customer, you can now download Vista from the MVLS Volume Licensing site.

Since around 10am (GMT) this morning, Vista has been properly released into the wild via MVLS - but no news yet as to when it will be available to the developer-centric MSDN community.

The MSDN site states that this is the most compelling Windows operating system for over a decade, leaving us to wonder what Microsoft really thinks of Windows 98, ME, 2000 and XP.

MVLS Vista comes in a variety of guises, and downloads including:
SA Win Vista Enterprise 32-bit English Disk Kit MVL DVD English 2006-11-15
SA Win Vista Enterprise 32-bit English Disk Kit MVL DVD UPG English 2006-11-15
SA Win Vista Enterprise 32-bit English Disk Kit MVL MVLS Only DVD Langua English 2006-11-15
SA Win Vista Enterprise 64-bit English Disk Kit MVL DVD English 2006-11-15
SA Win Vista Enterprise 64-bit English Disk Kit MVL MVLS Only DVD Langua English 2006-11-15
Windows Vista Business 32-bit English Disk Kit MVL DVD English 2006-11-15
Windows Vista Business 32-bit English Disk Kit MVL DVD UPG English 2006-11-15
Windows Vista Business 64-bit English Disk Kit MVL DVD English 2006-11-15
Windows Vista Business N 32-bit English Disk Kit MVL EEA Only DVD English 2006-11-15
Windows Vista Business N 32-bit English Disk Kit MVL EEA Only DVD UPG English 2006-11-15
Windows Vista Business N 64-bit English Disk Kit MVL EEA Only DVD English 2006-11-15

Seems the EU specified 'N', coupled with 32 and 64-bit versions for each different type of Vista creates a plethora of options to choose from.

We hope you lucky MVLS users have fun downloading Vista - just get over to the MVLS site quick, before the States wakes up. µ
