Windows Microsoft this Friday will ship the final pre-release version of Windows Vista and, unexpectedly, will name the release as Release Candidate 2. Previously, Microsoft had publicly asserted that it would not ship an RC2 milestone release of Windows Vista. But don't let the name fool you: RC2 is really just a standard interim build of Vista and will not be given out to millions of users as was RC1.

I am amazed they would have the stones to call this RC2 with 1400 known bugs (2400+ for RC1). With a brand new network stack that bug count can do nothing but increase. I truly see a disaster on the horizon for Microsoft. This isn't just MS bashing. I believe they will survive because they own most of the market. At least Sony will be glad to have the spotlight turned on someone else.
