So I am sitting in Redmond for MS-101 (you'll hear more about this next week) and someone just popped in and announced that Vista had been Released to Manufacturing (RTM). Quick check of my email and there was a global email sent out by Jim Allchin confirming that it is done! I for one am excited! I have been running what turned out to be the RTM build for about a week now, along with Office 2007 RTM and am thrilled we have reached this milestone.
You can see the announcement on the Windows Vista Blog
You can read the press release at Microsoft Press Pass
See Jim Allchin talk about the RTM over at Channel9
And read all about Vista at the Windows Vista Homepage
And how about a BIG round of applause for all the beta testers who have been a huge help in getting Vista to market! Thank-you!
