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.

Then people pay Gartner for that crap.

Nice to see that shareholder funds are being spent on 'beneficial information' to the 'future developments' of Windows.

Going by the crap they spew, maybe I should setup a 'consultancy service', not as though my 5 cents worth could be any further off base than theirs.

Oh, and btw, another year till Itanium rockets up to being a $15billion market! <laughs hysterically>
