    Windows Vista

    Rumors are abound that the RTM date has officially been set for July 25th, 2006. Microsoft is pushing hard for this date to prepare OEM's for the Christmas season ramp-up. With all of the new sku's being released, OEM's and Microsoft have been in talks to prepare them for the madness that will follow the release. A Beta 2 of Vista is expected to be in testers hands on December 16th, 2005.

    Office 12

    Office 12 Beta 1 will be available on MSDN Subscriber downloads within the next few weeks. In a marketing ploy, Microsoft decided to wait in order to build interest up before releasing it to developers.

    AntiSpyware Beta 2

    With rumors of a merge between Windows OneCare and AntiSpyware, The Hotfix has learned that they will indeed be a Beta 2 of AntiSpyware being released. Although an exact date is not yet know, late November 2005 has been a date that has been heard over and over

    I love it when you get a beta or CTP in download form, and it's three weeks or more old.

    Even if the rumors are true, we'd still have to wait until holiday season to buy a copy of Vista right?  I'm a but unsure what RTM entails.

    Does the Xmas buying season figure into Vista release date? I mean, I can't imagine this sentence on Xmas morning:

    "Oh, daddy, it's Windows Vista Ultimate Ed. 2005! I love you!"
