Yes, Windows Vista Beta 1 is available for beta testers now. But did you realize that the Longhorn Server Beta 1 is out there, too? Longhorn Server beta 1 has been released at the same time and is now available to private beta program participants. Longhorn Server beta 1 provides an early preview of some of the product’s technologies and features.  The goal of the release is to gather feedback and input from private beta program participants and partners, such as OEMs and ISVs. If you are a MSDN subscriber or part of the beta tester community you will have received or will soon receive the bits.
