    Final release date

    Just curious...do you all think that Vista will be released to general public
    in January of 2007? Or do you think it may be pushed all the way to next
    April or even May (or just scrapped altogether)?

    And if released on time, SP1 immediate in the horizon? I mean, we've been
    waiting for a few years now, so would another delay matter?

    RE: Final release date

    Since MS is pushing the RC1 milestone (instead of another beta), I'd say they
    are going for January, all they care about is money after all. SP1 for vista
    is roughly due around October 2k7.

    They won't scrap it. To must money invested, and the media would beat them
    senseless (four years between client releases. Business's care about money
    and public perception. Wouldn't be the first time MS released a broke OS for
    media coverage (WinME). Afterall, how could you release a OS named Millennium
    in 2002.

    2001, I meant, sorry. Though one can debate that the Millennium didn't start
    till 2001, instead of 2000.

    "scrapped altogether"?...not even an option.

    I can definitely see an early 2007 release.

    As far as waiting a few years...wasn't Vista due for release this year? So
    what have you been waiting a few years on?

    Re: Final release date

    A few misunderstandings...I knew that Vista being scrapped altogether
    probably wouldn't happen (huge financial disaster for MS if so), unless the
    code was so badly screwed up that it was impossible to deal with. From the
    post beta 2 builds, it's obvious that Vista being scrapped is a no no.

    Also, Microsoft (from way back) intiallly was to release Vista in 2003, a
    release between XP and Blackcomb (now Vienna). Gradually, delays surfaced,
    and instead of being a minor release, Vista grew to be a major release. Even
    so, numerous features have been dropped. so if you at the original plan, 3
    years have passed, and 5 years since XP was released.

    Re: Final release date

    I do want a Jan release, but I also want to underscore the importance of
    quality. Hope microsoft didn't forget that a quality product generates more
    revenue than a buggy one

    There is no indication by MS of consideration of any later date than this
    quarter for RC1, release to manufacturing and distribution to Software
    Assurance customers in November, and General Public Availablility in
    January. There may be one more interim release to TechBeta this month
    before RC1 is released to CPP participants and an even wider audience.

    Re: Final release date

    5505 is reported to be a fast, stable build. We'll see what RC1 will bring
    us.
