    Paul Thurrott, a Microsoft fan, wrote in a WinInfo update that Windows Vista would be hitting RTM (release to manufacturing) status today, a full two days earlier than anticipated.

    Windows Vista may have been finalized earlier - some sources say as soon as last Friday - but bugs that needed fixing, as well as an unexpected power outage Friday evening prevented the Windows team from creating a final build that night.

    Well, here we go!

    :)

    * Now, we'll get some actual feedback from this final build & see how it goes for folks...

    APK

    P.S.=> I haven't even tried the BETA RC2 (whatever) still here... downloaded it, but never even burnt it to DvD for installation... oh well! I live "vicariously" I suppose... apk

    Probably more than a few, but that's what it's ALL about - patches & such for the massive software & hardware mixture that MS' testing labs & folks who ran the beta didn't turn up!

    Driver support will PROBABLY be yet another, because of MS' new stance on allowing 3rd party OEM's access to the system @ THAT level, unless they certify thru on the driver via MS... takes time & all that!

    :)

    * I have a feeling it's going to be widely adopted (even if only eventually, & mostly by new PC purchasers) mostly by end-users rather than business environs!

    (For obvious reasons (like turning a whole operation "upside-down" for a new OS in a business in workstations alone isn't easy & maybe NOT that wise, especially w/ "in-house" applications written by the MIS/IS/IT team coders in said organizations))...

    APK

    P.S.=> It's going to be interesting to read reviews by websites who do that kind of thing, & of course, folks just like us, regarding apps we use, games we play, etc. as well... apk

    Well how many bugs have been found in XP? Now that it has become an extremely secure and stable OS M$ releases it's next monster to make up for it!
