    someone plse xplain wot beta, rc and rtm means plse?

    I think the code names given are unhelpful and daft, too.

    They don't tell you anything and simply sound cryptic.

    That also applies to IC's.

    hmmm, reasurring peeps by releasing a sp?

    Personally, for a sp to be released really soon gives me grave concerns about the standard of the product, if it needs one so soon....

    Well if its only 2 yrs till the next one, may as well wait, hardly worth it. I bet that's just a filler, too!!

    The stories I am hearing about vista is it looks nice and all that, but really isn't worth shelling out for, is it going to bomb commercially, I suppose a few peeps who simply have to have it will buy. ahh well, htat's hype for you, it was supposed to be revolutionary, not just a slight mutation

    Beta...not final code but not first build. RC means release candidate. RTM means release to manufacturing.

    The best part is that XP is everything 95 was supposed to be
    Condoleeza Rice is nice but I prefer A-Roni

    I heard in a pod cast the other day that M$ now believe that most users dont move to the new OS until the first service pack has been released this is why they now aim to have the first SP out as soon as they can after the release.

    I also think that Longhorn as it was got shelved because of the movie people getting involved and this is why its being planned for the next release/OS. So the OS we got was/is just a media player edition written in less than 12 months. If the next windows version is better then I might take a look, for me Vista is off the cards it offers me nothing and in fact has less that I would want, and really a lot of things that I do not. If there was a version with out all of the HDTV guff, not that you are even allowed to watch it at anywhere the full resolutions.

    I still use Win2000 as my main windows OS with quite a lot of people that I know.

    I use Slackware, but not as much as I used to, I try to use it more, but there is a lot of stuff I have to use that (when I last looked) does not run on *nix, and all of my work computers are Win2000 so I have just got used to it.
    I should update this, I have new AMD boxed and about 12 other boxed on my sub net.

    XP SP1 was out ~9-10 after release.
