There is nothing wrong with delaying a product. There is something wrong with promising a product with X features, then delaying said product and stripping out X features, then delaying again, stripping out more features, then delaying again and stripping out even more features. This is especially bad for a company as large as Microsoft and with delays in the years. I can deal with 6 weeks or even 6 months if that's what it takes to get a product up to standards, including all originally announced features. I'm having a hard time convincing myself that Vista is worth the wait after two of the biggest features (in my opinion) are no longer going to be included. Those features being WinFS and Monad. At least it's good for competition as many Linux distributions are now far outpacing Windows with features, like XGL and Beagle.
