ENT News | at | by Mike

As expected, Microsoft announced Wednesday that it is shipping the first feature-complete test release of Windows Vista -- this one aimed at giving enterprise customers a chance to run it through rigorous testing, especially for compatibility with existing corporate applications.

The latest community technology preview, referred to as the "enterprise CTP," will be followed by one more next quarter, which will take the product all the way up through the end of what Microsoft has referred to as the Beta 2 phase, company officials said in a briefing call with members of the press.
