Around 3:10 this afternoon, the final signoffs were completed and we released Beta3. This has been my number one priority (and that of most of the folks I work with) for the past several months. A lot of hard work and many, many, hours of ship rooms, but we are releasing the Beta with a level of quality of which I can be proud. Additionally, we are building Longhorn with Longhorn!

Check out the video in Dave's post. (For those that know me personally, I have a very minor part...you can see me 31 seconds into the video and hear me a bit later when I say something like, "How about we deliver it with the morning newspaper".)
