Vista completed tomorrow?

Microsoft is widely expected to announce the manufacturing release of Windows Vista tomorrow, according to various online sources. The software giant officially scheduled a conference call with company executive Jim Allchin for 11:00 a.m. PT, which Microsoft has linked directly to the future operating system, according to Electronista. The move will closely precede the official November 23rd availability of Vista for businesses and other large-volume customers, despite the operating system's mid-development rewrite and frequent delays. Widescale availability of Windows Vista to the general public is expected at the end of January next year.

    Is this a Mac News Network or a Tech News Network because we already have lots of those?

    Finished is one thing, working is something else!

    Mac news... well yeah

    I wasn't aware Macs were limited to one operating systems these days. I guess I missed the point where Apple said no to Vista and bootcamp in the future, but maybe you can point me to the written statements forbidding Windows to be run on Macs.

    That said, Vista better have fixed a lot in a very short period of time or this will be a pathetitic mess.

    Simple. Look at the under side of the system, if it says PowerPC.. it's a real Mac and it won't run Windows. If it says Intel Core anything, its a cheap sellout that runs Windows. I'm still bitter about the Intel move, even IF the systems seem faster. Apple has effectivly killed everything that made a Mac a Mac and is still acting as if it's special. It's not. It's like a Jaguar -- it's a $80,000 Ford Taurus that happens to have 2 front powered seats instead of just one. The Mac lost its soul, and before long it may lose its brain (referenced by Jobs to the Mac OS X migration -- a "brain transplant," and I don't forsee Mac OS sticking around as long as iPods, iTVs and the iTMS keeps churning - welcome to the SonyApple, we don't make computers we just make everything else and one computer -- iMac will always live on, even when Apple dumps their OS entirely).

    In disguise...

    Other than that... not even worth commenting.
