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.
