  Windows Vista SP1 Release Candidate (RC) Available for Download
Time: 07:27 EST/12:27 GMT | News Source: Softpedia | Posted By: Kenneth van Surksum

Making headway with the development of the first service pack for Windows Vista, Microsoft has made available for download a new testing milestone of the refresh. On November 14, 2007, the upcoming service pack for Vista evolved into the Release Candidate phase. However, as the label of the testing build indicates, the fully fledged RC is yet to come, as Microsoft is offering just a taste of the Vista SP1 Release Candidate. While initial reports related to the development of Vista SP1 pointed to the availability of a public version concomitantly with the first Release Candidate stage, this is not the case. But Microsoft did expand the testing pool in comparison to the beta launched in the last week of September.

Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Release Candidate is build 6001.17042. Vista SP1 RC is up for grabs for over 15,000 testers. The first beta for the service pack was dropped into the laps of in excess of 12,000 testers, on September 24. Vista SP1 Beta Build 6001.16659 shipped only to participants in the testing process of the development milestones of Windows Server 2008 and Windows XP Service Pack 3. Vista SP1 RC can also be accessed exclusively via Microsoft Connect, although the Redmond company did slip up and produced signs indicating that the build would be opened to all MSDN subscribers.

This is an RC PReview, not RC1.

Actually CPUGuy it is RC1... as its the first "release candidate" we've had :-) plus it is better than the SP1 beta!!

not available yet thru WU and is only a ISO format intended to be intergrated with Vista DVD.

The pre-RC SP1 fixed the "networked drive not available" issue. AntiVir updates properly now. Everything "just works" on my Toshiba notebook including all networked drives and printers. This SP1 candidate appears to be ready to polish and release. Good job.

This is actually RC1 Beta 1. :-)

This is getting ridiculous. Now we are going from beta of a release to a beta of a release candidate.

Sentinel - get with the program! This is obviously an early adopter's beta of the release candidate that may have 1 to 3 versions yet to be determined.

#7: It's a beta of the release candidate of the beta for SP1, also known as the gamma.

While MS nomenclature often deserves mockery, we all know that verbose descriptions, instead of simple names, have always been preferred by Redmond's software engineers (when simple names like Bob were used the products sucked). Therefore, they get the mockery that they ask for since they often seem to compete for the least useful product release name. In this case, beta 2 would have sufficed unless they already planned to release the preview as RC1 anyway.
