Do or Die for Windows Vista

Filed under: Vista — Marcus Tettmar @ 10:19 am

According to Sven Hallauer, Director of Windows Release Management, in a podcast interview yesterday, Microsoft has only a couple of weeks to ensure all critical bugs are fixed and in place to meet the Vista deadline. Any delay and the bugs either won’t get fixed, or the release date will slip.

Certainly Vista Release Candidate 1 is much more polished than Beta 2 and it does seem like Microsoft has stepped up a gear to try to meet their target release date.

Listen to the interview with Sven Hallaur in which he explains the build process behind Windows Vista.
