The t’s are crossed and the i’s are dotted. The sign-offs are complete. Windows Vista is now RTMed (Released To Manufacturing). If you have an MSDN license, you should be able to download it from MSDN shortly. Volume licence customers will receive Vista by the end of the month. All others, will need to wait until January 30th when it will be widely available.
What a week! This is when I feel great working for Microsoft. Truly the greatest software company in the world. In one week we released Office 2007, .NET 3.0, and Windows Vista. Each one a giant of a product, each one full with innovation, and each one leveraging the other two.
