Two weeks ago, I was able to secure a copy of a copy of Whistler beta build 2296. (As of now there is a later release). I chose to write this review in a "different" way. I will provide links to the rather large (1024X768) screenshots, while keeping the the "article" text on this main page to try and make it easier to navigate.
