    Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer said the launch of operating system Windows Vista could slip back even further.

    Vista was originally due for release in late 2002 or 2003, under the Longhorn name. It was then delayed until Christmas 2005, another deadline that slipped past. In March this year, Microsoft said the software would not be ready until January 2007.

    And today Ballmer said this date may move again: "Certainly, when Windows Vista comes to the market next year, and it will be next year, we will make sure that we make a high quality product, ship a high quality product, when it's ready.".

    Having missed the Christmas target, Microsoft is in discussions with computer manufacturers about the best time to ship the software.

    Ballmer said: "What we are discussing ... with hardware partners is when they would really like it - early January, late January, February. We are on track for shipping early in the year,"

    I'm very glad that Vista got delayed again, quite frankly, we're not ready for Vista :p. I love it when we don't get any major updates for a while, you can run new stuff on old hardware very nicely, Darth Flatulence is proof.

    If Vista never showed that would be the best thing consumers could ever ask for.

    IMO the EU should cease all sales and distribution of MICROSUCKS products until they comply with the EU's decision and fine.

    IMO i would rather have them spend time on it and delay it rather then making it half @$$ and having it suck

    We all know that M$ never completely finishes it products. It releases it for the consumer to use and then all the problems are exposed and M$ releases a service pack to fix it. :banghead:
