Microsoft Vista Pushed Back Yet Again

Microsoft has announced that its upcoming Windows Vista operating system will be delayed until at least January of 2007. Can anyone say vaporware? That’s OK MS, take your time. Seriously. We really don’t need Vista. There are plenty of excellent alternatives.

At any rate, this is likely good news for the Linux movement, and for Macintosh sales as Apple continues to increase its market share.

  1. I got a kick out of this quote from the Chicago Tribune:

    …Analyst Matt Rosoff with independent research firm Directions on Microsoft said he suspects computer makers are likely displeased with the situation, but with Microsoft’s strangle hold on the operating system market they have little control over it.

    “Certainly PC makers aren’t going to be happy about it, but I don’t know exactly what they’re going to do. They’ll wait,” he said. “There’s not a whole lot of choice at this point.” …

    It’s very sad to be so in the dark. Of course what would we expect from a “consulting” firm called Directions On Microsoft?! Sheesh!
