Shanen Boettcher shows off Vista Beta 2

Download

Right click “Save as…”

Shanen, a member of the Vista team from the beginning, takes me through a bunch of features in the Beta 2 release of Vista. We get to see event reporting, new policy management features, some IE security features, and a cool help option that actually handles doing the work for you.

Some entertainment features are also covered such as Media Center on a Tablet and the new URGE music service that works with Windows Media Player 11.

  • What is not clear to me is if MSN Desktop search, as we know it today (http://desktop.msn.com/) is available from that search box in the start menu as well. So I can type "from:jeroen to:mike" and then see all emails matching those criteria.

    Or does the search box in the start menu only search through start menu items?
  • Sven GrootSven Groot Don't worry... I'm a doctor.
    The search on the start menu searches all indexed locations. I just tested your from:x to:y example and it works fine, it finds my mail items from Outlook 2007 without any problems.

    The reflecting lights, rrrrrrrrr
  • Who makes that Tablet that he was using?

    It sounded like Shanen said that the New York Times WinFX application has been featured in another video... Any idea which video or when we get to see the application without the glare?
  • Duncan MackenzieDuncanma "yeah that's awful close, but that's not why I'm so hard done by"
    I actually don't think it was featured in another video... and the Tablet was from "Motion" I believe.

    I'll try to track down when we will have some more info about that demo up, and don't worry we'll get some better footage without the reflection Smiley

    Update: here is some info on that Times app... I'm still looking to the possibility of demo... and my apologies again about the glare, I'm new to this whole video thing Smiley
  • The voice of the download video is too lower to me.

    Vista is great. Beta 2 might be a little bit buggy, but the final version is going to be great. Smiley

  • erikerik_ Whooops!
    Does you switch between pen and finger mode or is it both always working? Because that would be quite irritating.

    Great overview of vista, but I wonder why he has all this laptops above his desk.

    The application was briefly shown off in the Bill Gates keynote from WinHEC 06.  It was shown by Mika?, moments before Shanen was also on stage.
  • Anyone else getting audio in the left channel only? For some reason balance doesn't fix it in WMP11 either.

    Same issue here.

    It is unfortunate WMP lacks the most basic audio controls... The balance control is slightly different control from a pan control like noted.


    However there's a workaround: Go to "SRS WOW Effects" (whatever that is), click "Turn on" and then move the WOW Effect to left.

    Raise your hand if you know what is SRS WOW without going to look it up...
  • Duncan MackenzieDuncanma "yeah that's awful close, but that's not why I'm so hard done by"

    Sorry about that folks, I was using a mono Mic into a stereo camcorder input... all fixed now for the next video, but sorry for the single channel audio on this and a couple of the other videos I've done lately.

    I am a bit puzzled about the other comment though, that his voice is too quiet, it sounds fine when I play it through so I'm not sure what some folks are running into.

    The app was also shown during Bill Gates' keynote at the American Society of Newspaper Editors:

  • Great video.  However, I noticed that they stated that MSDN and TechNet users can use the Beta 2 right away.  I know that MSDN can download the software, but I have yet to see an option for TechNet Plus users to be able to download the Beta 2.  Am I missing something, or is it only available to MSDN and the Beta users?Sad

  • Did he say NEGRO-Policy?
  • Hi there,

    I'm new to Channel9. First of all I would like to say, wow... what a great initiative this is! Big Smile

    In the video Shanen is talking briefly about the improved "help center" and mentions that there are developer tools for it.

    Is there a place where I can find more information on this particular part of Vista?

    Best regards,

    Yeah, it is a common feature - it's been in media player since version 9... I think? Some hardware devices also incorporate the wow technology. But I agree that you shouldn't ned 'work-arounds' in wmp.

    You just go to the 'View' menu -> enhancements -> SRS wow effects.
  • vista? too little, too late.
  • Why most video recordings are those with the perfect angle and position to get a refection instead the actual screen?
