    Vista release date

    From Here: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2005/08...vista_release/

    Microsoft has apparently put a date on the release of the next version of its Windows client, Windows Vista.

    Users can expect Windows Vista to ship by November 15, 2006 - just in time for the 2006 holiday shopping season, according to WindowsITPro. Microsoft will no doubt hope to cash-in on a consumer PC buying frenzy during the run up to Christmas.
    See the article for full details.

    I've been testing the beta build and there is no shortage of blue screens. Hell, SAV wont even run on it. I do however like that MS stole the look and feel of KDE - bravo!

    That sounds pretty positive to me! What, m$ users are finally getting multiple desktops? Multiple taskbars? And for only $199 upgrade? ROFL. Everyone run out and buy the new hardware required to run this beast and don't forget the new monitor you're going to need for HD content.

    They should have just called it Windows XP Service Pack 3.

    there is a multiple desktop feature in windows XP... you just need to download it from MS.


    The required system resources for Vista alone are enough for me not to want it.

    It's a thought which has always been on my mind. Like everyone else I'll probably mump and moan about it and buy it OEM anyway. The home machine will be due a big upgrade about then. Vista will probably make the new machine run slow enough so I don't see any benefit from it.
