Exclamation Vista's Launch?

I've been somewhat following the news on cnet's headlines about Vista's Launch, "Sometime next year" and I'm wondering if anyone has any more information on this....

I'm also in the market for a new PC this fall and i've been shopping already with the possibility of buying a system from (everything except, RAM, the graphics cards, a decent sound card and monitor). My question is should i wait for the 64bit version of Vista, or sholud I try to get the somewhat stable Windows XP Pro 64 while I can?

There is no specific date for Vista's release. It is just stated as Early 2007.

I would say wait for Vista x64. It wouldnt be worth it to spend the $$ now and then again after Vista is released.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher

Really? Cause I'd prefer just buying one operating system in a year, basically if I had to pick one what would you reccomend?

XP x64 sucks, driver support isnt' good and its buggy. Wait for Vista or just get the 32 bit version of XP.

most people are saying Vista will be "officially" coming out for consumers in January 2007 and for businesses, Fall'll probably be able to get a pirated copy in December...
