Not sure if anyone noticed it but word had begun filtering out that Vista is due out on Decmeber 5. This goes against the expected release projection of Jan 2007.
I myself noticed it at Zdnet UK here
. If you click that link you'll see that the story has been yanked !!
This is the guts of what it said...
"We will officially launch Vista, Microsoft Office 2007 and Exchange 2007 on 5 December," said David Hipwell, a Windows client sales professional at Microsoft. The business version of Vista - Vista Business - is expected to ship November 2006."
Fact or fiction ?? If it was bogus though, Zdnet would have just put up a disclaimer saying "this report has been denied" etc etc...
we'll just have to wait and see. Although Im quite happy with my xp media center setups, for any gamer worth their salt, a Vista upgrade is an inevitability, due to the carrot that is DirectX 10....
