Windows Ars takes a quick look at Vista RC1, and concludes: "Using it as my daily workhorse for two weeks has taught me a lot of things, the first of which is that Vista is doing better than many of its critics are claiming. A day after RC1 was available to select partners, the wires lit up with story after story about how 'Vista isn't ready'. No, it's not ready. It's a release candidate, at best, a late-stage beta at worst. Having actually used the OS for a while, I'm not so sure that the sky is falling claims have much merit."

"are you trying to tell me that with a release for Edgy Eft due in October Knot 2 and Knot 3 are only Alpha State releases?"

That's how Ubuntu themselves describe it:

"The Edgy Eft Knot 3 is the third alpha release of Ubuntu 6.10"
http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/knot3

And here's their development schedule:

"In a word, both a far from ready at this point in time."

That would mean that MS is lying about their release actually being a Release Candidate.
