That's incorrect. Read the story here: http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/new...ut-in-2009.ars
Microsoft is indeed thinking Q3 2009, but October 3rd is the average of all the guesses Microsoft employees made.

I really believe that MS should give it more time. I mean, if you have already declared that it will be out in 2010 then the time should be used to the fullest to make sure there are no loopholes and blind spots left!

Imagine this: If MS decides to go by the planned 2010 launch and takes all the time between now and launch date and uses it for testing, there is a strong possibilty that we will get a bulletproof OS! No need to patch, runs most available software out of box [atleast the ones available around the time of launch] and does not require any "help" from Internet.

But then again, this is my personal opinion!

As long as it doesn't launch as incompatible as Vista was at launch. I mean seriously, I couldn't use my printer or iTunes!

Hi Arxos,

Just to clarify a point, the non operation of printers under Vista was caused by lack of drivers from the printer manufacturers. Although they had plenty of time to develop drivers for the Vista model, some manufacturers decided not to develop them possibly in an attempt to drive hardware sales .

As for iTunes, If apple decide to provide a version of their software to run on Windows it it their responsibility to ensure it works, as it it Microsofts to ensure that their office suite works with a Mac if they wish to sell to that particular market.

A lot of perceived problems with Vista were, and are still being, caused by shoddy programming on the part of 3rd party developers

No printer drivers made for Vista is the problem. This problem made even more difficult because of X64 and printer manufacture's refusing to make drivers. Yes thats a scam to make people buy new printers no doubt.

As for itunes, it works fine for me in Vista and Windows 7. No problems at all so I have no idea what you are talking about there.

I totally agree. As I found out recently "Netgear" would not release a beta for Win 7? They are going to wait. This is a good example of how slow the hardware manufacturers are!
