Rumors about Windows XP schedule

Rumors about Windows XP schedule

There are more and more rumors on the net about unofficial schedules from Microsoft that concern the development plan of Windows XP, the joint successor to Windows 2000 and Windows Me.

Accordingly, Microsoft internally has the following plan for the Windows XP Professional and Home Edition set:

  • 07. June - Release Candidate 2
  • 25. July - Ready to Manufacturing
  • October - Available in stores

If these rumors are confirmed, Microsoft would have plans such as the availability of the new operating system by two months from August to October, moved to the rear. This would not be surprising, because both Beta 1 and Beta 2 were released to the beta testers much later than originally planned.
