Windows Customers and partners who've been holding their breath waiting for Beta 2 of Windows Vista before getting serious about testing Microsoft's next-generation operating system can exhale. There will be no single, catch-all Beta 2 of Vista, according to Jim Allchin, co-president of Microsoft's Platform Products & Services Division. Instead, Microsoft is planning to rely increasingly on CTP builds to get its feedback from Windows testers. Elsehwere, Allchin said you should buy Vista for its security enhancements.

They have to? Or else.. what exactly???

Or else all of the court imposed fines and payments to companies they have settled with may begin to affect their bottom line? (;

A new line of products will at least ensure they can pay and still keep their profits going up.

2-3 months delay wouldn't affect them that much.

They just announced record profits, despite the fact that XP was released almost 5 years ago, so please..
