Windows Vista, build 5536 offers significant performance improvements and feature enhancements over previous releases. I put together 35 high-resolution screenshots to give you a first look at Vista build 5536’s new integration of Windows Live services, Internet Explorer 7’s default dual-homepage design, User Account Control (UAC) improvements, personalized Control Panel, and more.

In my testing, I really liked how easy the installation felt. I added my 2 GB flash key (great feature) and my performance was AMAZING! I am starting to really enjoy working in the Vista world, baby!

Another major event is that Microsoft has integrated Windows Live in the OS. You will also be relieved to know that they have made User Account Control (UAC) smoother around the edges and not as annoying. Kudos!

We are one step closer to RC1. I am excited!
