It has been reported that Microsoft have sent a release candidate of Windows Vista Service Pack 2 to a small handful of private testers. It has been said that the private release was sent to users on the 19th of February.
According to a site called Ars Technica, the build number for the release is 6002.16670.090130. The private release has also been sent out to some Windows Server 2008 users.
Hopefully this means that a release candidate for SP2 will be released publicly soon. It would be nice to see it as I’ve had Vista SP2 beta on my laptop for quite a while now and it has worked fine.
I’ll update you as soon as I can find a release.
