Windows Vista not quite ready yet?

Posted on Saturday, September 09 2006 @ 20:01:02 CEST by


The first release candidate of Windows Vista was released this week to the public but according to some partners the operating system isn't quite ready yet.
One Microsoft analyst suggested the code is in good shape but he is not convinced that Vista Enterprise will be ready for volume licensed customers in November.

"RC1 is in the best shape of anything they have shipped for Vista, but in the old nomenclature I would call this at best a Beta Three and not a Release Candidate One," said Mike Cherry, lead Windows analyst at Directions on Microsoft, a newsletter in Kirkland, Wash. "I am always skeptical of a plan that is so good that you know that you are only going to have a single release candidate and then get to golden or release quality code. Instead I think they will do a second release candidate at a minimum and finish up or release to manufacturing sometime in December."

Another partner who declined to be named cited ongoing interoperability problems affecting Vista's interaction with existing hardware and software and potential price issues that consumers may have about the new high-end version, known as Ultimate.
