Default Windows Vista Goes Gold!!!

Yes, after 5 long years of development, Windows Vista has finally been completed and has now been Released To Manufacturing (RTM). Windows Vista is Microsoft's latest version of Windows and is the successor to Windows XP.

The big milestone was announced this morning in Redmond at arround 11AM PDT (7PM GMT) via Microsoft PressPass.

From the sleak new "Aero" interface to the new system sounds (Which remain mostly unheard besides the Startup sound) Windows Vista definetally brings a breakthrough user experience.

As shown on the Windows Vista Home Page, Vista is scheduled to be released to the general public on January 30th, 2007. However, MSDN and TechNet Subscribers will have it available to them within 7 days from today.

Wahoo...?

I'm sure Vista is super-duper and all, but most have no reason to shell out the dough to upgrade to it.

MS plans on making its money through OEM installations on new systems, since the general masses only know "It's new".
