Windows Speaking at a forum in South Africa regarding a plan for Microsoft to make major technology investments in the country, Bill Gates said there was an "80 percent chance" Windows Vista would by ready for its planned January launch. He also had no qualms about delaying the OS further if necessary.

Maybe MS is finally going to wait to release it until it is ready. I really hope that it is usable before the second service pack comes out unlike XP. Maybe they have realized that they have real competition from Mac and some of the Linux distro's like Ubuntu or SLED and are going to release something that will not send people running for the hills. How many times has Linus say "it will be released when it is ready. No, I don't know when that will be." The delay may be a good thing. Don't harp on them for doing something right for a change.
