what's the difference between Windows XP Service Pack 2 with the another one with "rc1" on it?

curious to know....

RC1 is not the final version of the software!
First comes the Release candidates ( RC 1, 2 ..etc) then the final products and then the service packs!!

For example, we all are aware of the upcoming release of IE7!

they released IE 7 Beta 1, then Beta 2, then Beta 3 and then RC1!

So, its the pre releases!

after that only, the final product comes to market!

Then, they will release service packs if they need to fix some issues or update the softwares!!

Check IT

Quote:
release candidate

A pre-release version of software. Sometimes software vendors make one or two release candidates (RC1, RC2, etc.) available to select customers in advance of the official release. A release candidate is like a "sneak preview" of the final release with the added advantage that serious bugs may yet surface and be fixed before the general public uses it. Thus, there are alpha versions (internal), beta versions (external), release candidates (sometimes) and the final release of software. After that, there are countless updates that add features and fix bugs. See alpha version and beta version.
