Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates said Tuesday there was an 80 percent chance the company's next-generation operating system, Vista, would be ready in January.

However, Gates said at a presentation in Cape Town to Microsoft software partners that he would delay the launch if beta testing uncovered shortcomings.

The Vista software has been subject to a number of delays. Beta users of software test products before their full commercial release in an effort to uncover problems.

this will probably be his last big project i mean he stated he was retiring a few months ago and i read someware that vista was starting to be developed right after XP and the fact that he announced that he would have no problem pushing it back makes me think he wants to go out w/ a bang a really decent OS a kinda milestone not that he isnt going to be remembered anyways..but something the next cheif architect can gawk at when he takes the throne.

Vista sucks. There is still about 9-12 months of fit and finish to get it done right, and that is still with half the new features tossed by the side of the road to get it rolling.

I know alot of people that won't "Buy" it, but somehow they will magically have it on their PCs.

yeah but Im betting 2 to 3 times that number use XP. I'm getting vista, not like I won't have XP still on another partition and linux, possibly OSX. But their is nothing wrong with staying up to date. I don't know why so many people are anti vista.
