    Microsoft announced on Tuesday that they will once again delay Windows Vista, formerly known as Longhorn, until early next year. The software giant said it will wrap up development of the new operating system this year and make it available to volume licensing customers in November. Microsoft’s Windows chief Jim Allchin said the company is delaying the broad launch of the product until January 2007. Allchin also stated that the product will still launch in Microsoft’s next fiscal year, which begins in July, meaning that Microsoft’s overall business for next year shouldn’t be affected. Allchin stated that some of the additional time was for ensuring security levels, and the company is also working on ironing out usability issues. “We’re trying to crank up the security level higher than ever,� Allchin said. “This came down to a few weeks. We’re trying to do the responsible thing here.�

    What are MS upto? Every few days we either hear about a delay or a reduction in a feature. Are they gonna come out with Vista atlast or no? Or even if they come out with vista, it seems from the way they're going it would have features of XP and a brand new name and a higher price tag.

    Ive got a AMD64 3000+ with 1GBRAM & a 6800GT so I guess its fine.
    But im more worried abt the licensing system & what kind of things I can & cant change in my comp for me not having to buy a new license.
