vista service pack 2

Recommended Posts

Is Vista service pack 2 RTM the SP2 final (6002.18002)?

What is the difference between a RTM and a public version?

A product reaches RTM stage when it has completed all alpha, beta and release candidate phases. It is also known as "Gold" phase, or the time when the product is final and can be then sold in stores or to resellers.

Sp2 RTM (installer) is available for Technet/MSDN Subscriber

Since it has completed all the testing phrases and is final, why is it only released to manufacturer but not both manufacturer and public?

That's my point.

the point is, that developers should test their software (applications, drivers ..) and create updates if required before the public gets the sp2

Windows always goes to manufacturers first. This is why you can go to the store and get an HP with a new OS before the retail copies are available. Or they try for a simultaneous release, so that new PCs hit the stores the same time as the new media does.

@Millen, yes this is the RTM! If MSFT now finds bugs, you'll get them later as Hotfixes/Updates.
