Vista's Last Mile 

Watch out for this, my fellow citizens:

Via ZDNet News.com

The once-daily shiproom meetings have become twice-a-day events as the
product has neared completion. Projected onto a screen is a list of
unresolved issues that need to be addressed before Vista can leave. There
were about five dozen such issues at a meeting last Wednesday morning.

Sven Hallauer, who heads up the process, moved quickly through the list as
about 40 programmers, nearly all with a laptop in tow, worked to keep up. At
each sticking-point, the person responsible for tracking the issue gave a
one-sentence report on where things were.

In one case, there was a bug in the Slovenian release of Vista. It was
quickly tabled as not pressing, given that Slovenian is not in the first or
even second wave of localized versions of Vista.
Other reports came in--this
software program has a hitch, this particular laptop has trouble waking up
from sleep.

Huh? It seems we're getting an added value version.
