Windows Vista December 2005 CTP (Build 5270) Review

Me, in SuperSite for Windows:
I think people are going to be surprised by how good the Windows Vista December 2005 Community Technical Preview (CTP, or build 5270) really is. After years of painful delays and an uncertain couple of months since the last CTP, Microsoft shipped a near-feature-complete Vista build to testers this week, and the prognosis is extremely positive. From what I can see, Vista has turned the corner. The December CTP is an exciting release, stable and full of new features. In this review, I'll examine those new features, and the features that have changed since the previous CTP, build 5231.
Uh-oh. It's really good.

I also have a number of screenshot galleries up if you want a quick primer on the new stuff. Check out my Vista activity center for the links.
