Could someone please enlighten me on the process MS uses to "vote" on RTM and gold code? Is this process a consensus of ALL the people that work on the code, voting on which build they like? Is it just the product managers and/or VP? Is it 2 people sitting in a room smoking cigars? I was hoping someone could elaborate about this process. How long does it take? Is it done electronically? Do they stuff a paper ballot in a box?
