The long wait is finally over. On Wednesday, November 11, 2006, at 11:00 a.m. PST, Microsoft announced that it had released Windows Vista to manufacturing, ending five years of waiting and one of the longest development periods in Windows history. For Microsoft, its partners, and its customers, the lengthy road to Vista concludes with Microsoft shipping the so-called "golden master" version of the product to manufacturing and its closed partners.

I get the feeling this will show up on MSDN on Monday next week.
My desktop's been running RC 2 anyway, so I'm all ready to make the jump. :)

Well - that'll not be in anyone's Christmas stockings then - if it is true about January....[EDIT] just heard it on the radio news - forecast is for 100million installs in the year (or is that in January!) now then - at a price of whatever how much cash does that give Bill to play with for support? :p [/EDIT]

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
