I presume ( I say presume because I am still d/loading RC2) that it will need a key and I presume (once again) that any Beta2, RC1 key will work as with previous releases.

If you don't have a key by now, pm me and I can give you one, I have accumulated 4 x 10 pc licences during this Vista testing phase so I have a couple of spare keys

Yeah, you need a key to activate it. You can use a key for RC1 (not sure about Beta2, but probably).

You can get one if you sign up to the beta program for RC1, here: https://login.live.com/ppsecure/secu...c7d8f286da0038

The RC2 download page doesnt seem to be online anymore? I don't know why, but I think it was leaked to begin with.

Well I am happy with my copy of RC2, and RC1 is still online for download.

What does RC2 have that RC1 doesnt because I just ordered RC1 from Microsoft on disk because we have dial-up.
