Default Longhorn Beta 1 Schedule Revealed

Longhorn Beta 1 Schedule Revealed

According to my sources at Microsoft, the software giant has set its sights on July 27, 2005 as the release date for Longhorn Beta 1, though obviously that date could slip if the company is unable to hit internal bug requirements. The current escrow build for Longhorn Beta 1 is 5101, a few builds older than build 5103, the current internal build in the Beta 1 fork.

As reported previously, Microsoft recently forked the Longhorn build process to segregate Beta 1 code check-ins from the post-Beta 1 (or what we can think of as the Beta 2) code path. Recent leaks of Longhorn builds are from the Beta 2 code path, but we can expect them to be quickly eclipsed by the Beta 1 code base as Microsoft makes that milestone widely available.

As far as the Beta 1 schedule goes, Microsoft's test teams are required to complete testing by July 22, but they need to achieve the "0 active bug" designation in order to ship Beta 1. On Monday, there were 123 active bugs in the Beta 1 fork. That number had dropped to 86 by Tuesday.

All hail MSDN members lets hold a tea party sometime shall we j/k. No "normal" windows users cannot download it, but if they do let anyone download it be prepaired to sell your soul to them (ie mailing lists and survies and such). And warez I've been ranting Beta 1 for over 4 months this is nothing new the timeframe was always late july but I guess an exact date really helps.
