Fully featured Windows Vista CTP coming
Wait for it, wait for it…
Developers are closer to getting a full, pre-release copy of Microsoft’s next client operating system with Microsoft’s latest Windows Vista Community Technology Preview (CTP).
Microsoft on Monday re-committed itself to delivering a “feature-complete” Windows Vista CTP in “early” 2006, hinting this could be around the time of January’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Shanen Boettcher, senior director for Microsoft’s Windows client group, promised Windows Vista would be “feature complete” by the end of the month.
Boettcher was speaking as he announced features tackling security, enhanced mobility and better performance in the latest CTP released to 500,000 developers on the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) and TechNet sites.
He was unwilling to say which features remained to be shoved into the Windows Vista code base for the next – and presumably final – CTP.
