Visual Studio 2008 to RTM By End of November 2007

Microsoft’s S. "Soma" Somasegar announced that Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5 will release to manufacturing (RTM) by the end of November 2007, at a keynote address at TechEd 2007 Europe. This makes it the first of the "holy trinity" of next generation Microsoft platform products (Visual Studio 2008, Windows Server 2008, and SQL Server 2008) to make it out of the gate.

Of course Microsoft is still having their simultaneous "launch" event for all three products at the end of February 2008, in Los Angeles.

My prediction is that Windows Server 2008 will RTM in Feb/Mar 2008, and SQL Server 2008 will RTM in Jun/July 2008. Now we will see if Microsoft makes me look good or not…
