Does anyone know when RTM will be available on MSDN for download? - Subscriber downloads does not list it - the latest version is Candiate Release 2 (2526)

Would think it would be in the October Shipment as I think that the September shipment has already been mastered.

Hey Guys,

Just to clarify the whole MSDN thing:

If you pay Micro$oft for their MSDN libraries, which in other words means that you are paying them approx. 1500$ US, you will get the RTM build of Windows XP on CD.

According to a post on http://www.activewin.com

"According to James Van Eaton, MSDN Subscriptions Program Manager, the final version of Windows XP is scheduled to be made available to Professional and Universal subscribers on Friday September 21st, one month in advance of general, retail availability."

- in case anyone is interested....

So MSDN subscribers get thing like Office XP, Windows XP, and other M$ products b4 they are released because they pay $1500 a year. OUCH.

That's some high cost.

PS - If NE1 doesn't want their MSDN subscription I'll be happy to use it for you. :D

So basically, if you know that it's a big year for Micro$oft, subscribe to MSDN and get everything you want :)
