Microsoft releases latest Vista OS RC

Microsoft has released what appears to be the final candidate for its Windows Vista operating system (OS) before it is distributed to manufacturers over the next couple of months.

The new test version is available to Microsoft’s Customer Preview Programme participants for a limited time and the software giant said this latest version had “thousands of quality improvements since Windows Vista RC1”.

Analysts such as Gartner had predicted further delays to the OS following Microsoft’s announcement in March that it was pushing back the release date.

And doubts still linger over Microsoft’s ability to meet its November deadline for corporate customers and January deadline for general release.
