The next few weeks could be crucial in the evolution of Windows Vista, Microsoft's next client operating system. Microsoft engineers will crunch through feedback from 500,000 beta testers who evaluated the latest Windows Vista Community Technology Preview (CTP). At stake is a "feature complete" Windows Vista CTP due for release in "early" 2006. At last, after three years of big promises and broken dreams, we should be able to cut away the hype and get a realistic idea of Windows Vista's features and capabilities.

BT released figures today which showed that the number of attempts to access websites hosting child pornography have trebled in the past 18 months.

BT reports that it is now blocking 35,000 attempts to access child pornography in Britain every day.

And one leading e-commerce figure has described over Internet Service Providers' failure to block access to such sites as "outrageous", and called on other ISPs to follow BT's lead.

The figures from the telecoms company, which accounts for one-third of the internet market in the UK, are based on data acquired since it introduced a filter in June 2004 to block access to child porn sites.

It is feared the overall number could be much higher and that many attempts to access illegal material are slipping through filtering technology.
