Oh yea!! As of Friday, June 10, 2005 12:22 PM PST we are one *MAJOR* milestone closer to shipping .NET Framework 2.0… The CLR team, the heart-and-soul of .NET, has fixed the last of the known bugs against us… we call that Zero Bug Bounce (ZBB).  Of course there will be a few more to come in via customers and stress, etc, but we can now clearly see the light at the end of the tunnel… We will ship this thing!


There is a bit of a tradition when you are reporting ZBB status to clearly communicate the number of bugs remaining.. I wanted to continue that tradition here:



The team did an amazing job over the last few weeks really focusing hard on bugs…. There is some debate as to what it was that focused the team best to meet this amazing goal.   Front runners are:


  1. The free latté cart on Tuesdays and Thursday
  2. The free ice-cream in the afternoons
  3. Did someone say ship party?
  4. Yearly employee performance reviews roughly line up with ZBB date ;-)




Thanks for your continued involvement and support as we lock-and-load .NET Framework 2.0!
