Windows ME now RC0
The finished product from Windows ME is getting closer and closer. The Windows 98 SE successor Windows ME recently achieved RC0 (Release Candidate 0) status. Microsoft Windows ME will definitely be the last operating system that will be based on the Win9x core.
All the following projects, such as Windows code name Whistler, will be based on the NT core. The official message to the beta testers when the RC0 was released says:
'... Many sources have commented that this is already the highest quality 9x release there has ever been ...'
This means that Microsoft should be able to keep the planned release of the English version on June 12th. The German version should follow a month later
