Windows Vista Beta 1 Build 5270

Microsoft released Build 5270 of Windows Vista Beta 1 yesterday. I've downloaded it and I'm looking forward to tinkering with it and writing about it during the first week of January. Apparently, the new security tools are beefed up in this build. I'll definitely chime in with my opinion of that once I get Build 5270 installed.
