    I really hope that we get to know more today. At least a timeframe for RTM availablility for MSDN subscribers.

    I'm a little bit annoyed that such a big secret is made of the estimated RTM date of VS 2008, even though a lot of people currently using Beta 2 would benefit from beeing able to plan their switch to RTM accordingly. Requests for more details on Scott Guthrie's blog have been left unanswered so far.


    No RTM at TechEd. End of the month quoted for MSDN


    Is that insider information or just guessing?

    Actually, there appears to be a bug in the Beta 2, and its in Linq to SQL, and So I was wondering if MS has said the date at which RTM would be in MSDN Subscriber downloads?


    Can we expect it by next Monday? Or is that too soon?Wink
