Microsoft Vacation

Yikes, this week has been hectic!  The Vista tour at Microsoft is over, and it really was great to see all the amazing people who work on Vista daily.  I want to thank the beta team for making the tour happen, especially Wendy Stidmon and Paul Donnelly.  Special thanks also to Robert, our very own admin here at Windows-Now, for some very down-to-Earth discussions.

While I can't delve into what was talked about extensivly at the tour, there are certain things that are looking very promising.  RC2 was released at the touch of a special beta testers' hand, and they are still on track for delivering Vista to the masses in the early part of next year. 

In the next few days, the public download for RC2 should be up and ready for anyone willing to throw it onto their home machines.  RTM is on the way and it's looking quite good.  I'd highly suggest that if you can afford the Ultimate Edition, you should get it. 

The SWAG gallery isn't up yet because I still have some items to photograph, but it should be up in the next day or so.

Last but not least, I wanted to take the time out to thank the people I met on the tour that actually read my blog.  It's been a real invigorating expereince for me to go from no readership to being able to see my posts in very cool places.  So thanks to the people who continue to support me, my blog, and most importantly, the new Windows-Now.com.  Thank you all!

 PS:  Some people have written to me to tell me the Gallery isn't working.  I havent' posted the pictures yet as I am not home from my vacation yet and don't have a good enough access to a computer to upload the photographs at this time.  My sincere apologies, and I will try to have the gallery up on Sunday the 15th.  Thanks!
