Microsoft’s new operating system, Vista, is going to be delayed and released in November 2006 for businesses and to consumers in January 2007.
“Product quality and a great out-of-box experience have been two of our key drivers for Windows Vista, and we are on track to deliver on both,” said Jim Allchin, co-president for the Platforms & Services Division at Microsoft. “But the industry requires greater lead time to deliver Windows Vista on new PCs during holiday. We must optimize for the industry, so we’ve decided to separate business and consumer availability.”
This announcement is not causing anyone concern, especially small businesses I suspect, as Windows XP and 2000 are very stable operating systems.
As you consider buying new computers over the next few months do ensure they have MORE power than you need to last for the next 3 – 5 years and to be able to run any software you might want to run in the coming months such as Windows Vista, or other software.
