We have this term here at Microsoft RTM. Release to Manufacturing. The code is golden, or go press some DVD’s.
It basically means we are finished with the developement of the product, YEA!
We now have all three VISTA, OFFICE 2007 (System), and now Exchange 2007. All of those billions of $$ in R&D and finally they are finished.
I am so excited about our launches coming up very soon. You better go sign up for them now. I will be doing the ones in New England!
