Does anyone know if the retail version of Vista will be out in January with the OEM version out earlier?
I don't know, but as the commercial version is release-to-market in November, and the official reason for a January retail launch is because of difficulties getting the SKU in the retail channel from such a late Holiday RTM, it is entirely possible that Vista be made available to OEMs this holiday. Dell will most certainly be agitating for it, given the direction of their business.
