Yes, but the OEM will be out much earlier than that. This is the boxed version packaged with all the paraphenalia, distributed through Stores World Wide.

I think you should pencil in the OEM for early October. Note they are say RC (which won't be a free distribution), is before end of September.

Actually, it looks at though Japan might be first with this!

Yes, that is very hard to believe. Both are monumentally late, and I'm measuring "monumentally" in earth years. Vista was started in 2001. Not sure how you are defining "on track" :p

I don't think they are overpromising this time. IE7 RC1 and the betas have been good and on track. I foresee a good spring with PPC. One year from now, we will all know our ROI.

Re: Vista in January?

I think we will see steady uptake, but for Japanese anyway expect a 2-3 year timeframe where the results will be coming in.

Re: Vista in January?

I agree, but some other languages are barrelling along as we speak. Russian has been good from the start and getting better every day.

I am finding Russian very slow in comparison at the moment. Japan is the key market.

Re: Vista in January?

Everyone that has backed Asian Script IDN is a surefire winner, but as with all winnings, it will be largely in proportion to the stake and those that took early odds will have a distinct advantage.

Yes, you are correct. We all stand to 'win' our share. I think we will all be happy.

Of course you are absolutely right, but there is no Christmas trade in Boxed Software, just a logistical nightmare in burning it and getting it to the shops. Vista will not be ready for Christmas, but they will release it anyway. That's what Auto Updates are all about!

you're right, no there isn't in shrink-wrapped software, but there is in turn-key pc's preloaded with the latest O/S. this is what they are missing...

.. maybe Christmas shoppers will just buy a Playstation 3 instead :p

Don't worry, they are close enough to ship the OEM very soon. The Pre RC was handed out in 100K copies. The only difference between this and RC1 is that there are no Auto Updates, because Microsoft is not giving the thing away. We can expect RC1 by Mid September. Full OEM release will be about Mid October. That gives enough time for Chinese Manufacturers of Dells to get them to the shops. Each phase of IE 7 has persistently been about 2 weeks ahead of Vista. I think it is a racing certainty now that we will have IE 7 before end September.

If M$ fail to come through with the goods, then you can forget brand loyalty, you will be lucky to have brand credibility. And besides, were do you think my Christmas budget is coming from? If Microsoft hold out on me, I won't be buying any games for the XBox.
