Microsoft Windows Vista RTM
Microsoft has announced the Windows Vista release to manufacturing (RTM) through the Windows Vista Blog. This important milestone signifies the end of development of Windows Vista, a significant effort by the software giant.

The company recognises the participation of an enthusiast community, who have played a key role in supporting the development of the new operating system through beta testing and feedback.

With RTM Microsoft indicates to the market that Windows Vista is done and will be handed off to industry partners, including PC makers, ISVs and IHVs. They in turn will continue to ramp-up in earnest now that the target is locked, for example, by refining hardware drivers, in order to complete the cycle and make Windows Vista available via retail channels on 30 January 2007.

On that date Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office system will be available to customers around the world.

Windows Vista will be available within 7 days to MSDN and Technet subscribers for download and use for development and review purposes.
