Its shares closed down 2% after a Microsoft executive appeared to avoid confirming the current January 2007 Vista release data for consumers. Instead, Microsoft's Kevin Johnson said Vista would be shipped "when it is available".

Did you miss the multiple articles months ago in the NY Times and other places where Microsoft said that after 2-3 years of Longhorn development, starting with XP as a starting point, they started over using Windows Server 2003 as the starting point?
