Windows Vista RC2 Released

Analysts in recent days have been conflicted over the possibility of further delays to Windows Vista, with both Gartner and Goldman-Sachs providing contradictory reports on the readiness of Microsoft's future OS. The software developer addressed these worries Friday afternoon by officially distributing Vista Release Candidate to testers. This latest build is the final prerelease version to ship before the officially scheduled release to manufacturing on October 25th. Testers must currently be part of Microsoft's official beta testing group or developer program to download the new version. The number of known flaws is said to be falling rapidly and is expected to pass Microsoft's quality requirements for a final release, according to journalist Paul Thurrott.
