Windows Vista Slipsta

vista.jpgNow, how is that for shocking? We’ve never known Microsoft to announce a product before it’s ready or slip on a very public schedule… oh wait, that’s Apple. Now, writing a new OS must be difficult, but after stripping out several big features (including WinFS, a next gen file system), you’d think that it would have been made easier.

Vista was supposed to ship right before the holiday season and it will now ship in January 2007. Vista’s most recent date slip won’t come without repercussion. MS has announced a new Windows chief and heads are expected to roll soon.

CNET has a nice roundup of stories regarding the date slippage.

Have to give credit for that title to my cousin Jason, tech geek extraordinaire. His puns and wordplay may only be slightly worse than mine.
