XMMS is similar to Winamp right?

You can use linux or port it. These are just one of those Gems that rival the propietary software like Partition Magic, MS Office, AIM, Media players. All have better free variants that have more functionality and uses.

Research firm Gartner said Tuesday that it believed Microsoft would miss its targets and release Windows Vista another three or so months after its current November-January timeframe. The firm claims Vista's features are too complex to be finished that quickly.

Windows Vista was originally scheduled for a 2005 release, but has been repeatedly delayed as the Redmond company struggled to finish upgrades and ensure a quality release. Vista is the first major upgrade of the Windows platform in five years.

The period between XP and Vista is already the longest ever between major releases of the operating system since Windows 1.0. Some believe that Microsoft's delays have also led to a resurgence of Apple's Mac OS X platform in recent months.

It is distrurbing seeing win95, win98, winME, win2K following all close timelines. XP was a fast release but not alot was changed at the functionality level. But Vista is almost taking 2.5 times longer than normal. But as long as the final product released is of quality Linux can keep me happy.

Microsoft continues work on Windows Vista build 5381, which will be finalized as Beta 2 on May 22. Attendees of the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) will receive Windows Vista Beta 2 on DVD, while Microsoft plans on seeding the build to testers, other partners, and millions of consumers via a widely distributed Community Preview Program (CPP) in the following days.

If you've been waiting for a chance to get your hands on Windows Vista, that day is finally coming. WinHEC 2006 is running from 22nd - 25th May.
