updating RC1?

#1
I have Vista Ultimate RC1 build 5600.
Am I correct in assuming that they don't release any updates or
patches or whatnot for the RC's? I've been keeping an eye on the
"Download Updates Available" tool and haven't seen anything for weeks.
Just curious. =) Thanks.

You won't see anymore updates for the RC releases now that Vista is
released. Even before release, they typically only release patches for
non-released products if the issue is extremely critical.

I think the same updates should be for RC's but I may be wrong

the real deal is out to anyone who like to buy.

At this time all betasupport and updates will come to an end.

you can keep that copy of betavista until it expires in 5 - 6 months, but
it's pretty much worthless and technically outdated.

From Rc1 to Rtm there were major changes in stability,drivers,features and
speed and last but not least to the Appearance and Behaviour of the OS.

Is it possible to buy the upgrade and use that on RC1?

No. In order to use the upgrade installation, you will need an activated
copy of XP or Win2000 installed first.

He can do the upgrade installation all right. But he has to use a full
edition to do it.

How about a legitimate copy of a volume license Win XP Pro?
Can one upgrade from that with just an upgrade Vista?
