    I imagine the PC makers will try to circumvent the delay by offering a "free" upgrade to Vista upon release. That would help sales and the holiday season could be partially saved.

    It is hard to say really.

    It may be a blessing in disguise for those folks that would have gotten a "rushed to market" version for Christmas! :D

    I just read about the delay of Windows Vista until January 2007 in the newspaper this morning, and I've since seen it posted on several websites.

    Microsoft is going to find computer users hanging on to Windows XP for a lot longer than they want them to. I'm waiting for the MIE 7.0 and SP3 upgrades to be released and will continue to use Windows XP.

    None of my computers will likely handle Windows Vista anyway. It's my understanding that at least a 2.0 GHz processor speed and at least 1,024 MB of RAM will be required for it to run properly with other apps.

    Microsoft will just love that. Two license fees for each machine.
