Windows Vista delayed - again

David Chartier
I almost decided not to post this on the grounds that a lot of us probably won't be surprised, but then I figured it might still be good for a laugh.

A friend passed me an article at CNET which reports that Vista has been delayed yet again to January 2007. Windows chief Jim Allchin explained that a few complications would force some PC vendors to wait until '07 to get their hands on the über-delayed upgrade to Microsoft's OS, while others could have it as soon as November 2006. As a result of this quirk, Microsoft ultimately decided to push the hold button again, kicking Vista's debut into January of 2007.

Here's hoping Apple will capitalize on this latest roadblock in Vista's development. With Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) still slated to land this year, along with the recent announcements of a new chip from Intel and WWDC's move to August (perhaps for a Leopard release?), I wouldn't be surprised if 2006 turns into a fantastic year for Apple.

As a multimedia student in Denver, CO, David Chartier has his hands in the design, web and Apple industries. After his first IBM PC in high-school got him hooked, Dave hit the ground running - tinkering with just about everything you can do with and to a computer. After getting into design school and catching the Apple bug in 2001, Dave's obsessions focused on what's coming next in the worlds of graphic, video and web design. On the rare occasion Dave is without his MacBook Pro, you'll probably find him either on his snowboard in Breckenridge or a local bike trail.
