Windows Vista RC1 released

Microsoft's next-generation operating system Windows Vista has reached Release Candidate stage. Although the company has often been maligned for its frequent delays to Windows Vista, fears of further delays have been partially addressed by the completion of Vista Release Candidate 1, which as announced today by Microsoft executive Jim Allchin in the official development team blog. Vista RC1 will initially seed to developers and hardware manufacturers: though a public release is also scheduled, it has not been formally announced. Electronista.com reports that "response to the quality of recent builds has been much more positive than for Beta 2, which invited criticism even from long-term Microsoft supporters for its poor performance and unnecessarily strict User Account Control feature." Yesterday, Microsoft accidently leaked pricing on its website, which revealed that it plans to charge $199 for a Windows Vista Home Basic license, with additional licenses fetching $179.
