Microsoft Beta Client to be replaced

September 20th, 2006 by Patrick S

Looks like that trusty little tool (MBC)-the workhorse of the humble beta tester is to be replaced by something bigger and better!

Today the Windows Beta Team was pleased to announce our plans to develop a new bug reporting client, code named “Holmes”. In the future, “Holmes” will replace the current bug reporting client Microsoft Beta Client (MBC).

Microsoft have started to gather requirements for the new client from beta participants this summer. They hope that testers can help them prioritize these requirements so that they can focus our resources on areas that are most important to us the beta tester.

So… If you are a vista tester get that survey answered ASAP to get “Holmes” going-cant wait.

Holmes and [Dr] Watson what an awesome team!! 😉
