Release Candidate or Beta2?


After a discussion with the folks on the list i thought it might be interesting to jot down when to use Visual Studio Beta 2 (B2) over the Release Candidate (RC)


Why Beta2:


1.      WinFX /Vista tools are synced with this build


2.      Somebody mentioned looming expiry date –Beta 2 won’t expire until May 2006


Why VS RC/TFS Beta3.


 



  1. Get the release features/experience
  2. Beta3 of TFS will be the only version that will have an upgrade facility to the Beta3 refresh with a go live license or the Release early next calendar year.
  3. Go Live covers Beta2, RC and TFS Beta 3  (thanks for the link Jesse!)

 


 


So what am I using?  I have Beta2 with WinFX on my primary computer and VS RC/TFS Beta3 on a VPC (which we should be making publicly available very soon)
