  • Do you have a nice Windows Smartphone such as the Q or a PDA? Do you use ActiveSync to work with your contacts, favorites, install software etc.? Are you a software developer that uses ActiveSync to get your builds on the device? You are out of luck with Windows Vista RC1.

    The Windows Mobile Device Center is not part of RC1 and will be released as an update. You are warned, while RC1 is labeled a release candidate, this major feature is not available. ActiveSync is not compatible as the WMDC has replaced it. That means you are able to do nothing more than copy over some files (such as pictures and music) unless you use Exchange. No contact syncing, no software installs... Nothing. I will post when the update is released.
