It's scheduled to be released for public sale on January 30, 2007. So I doubt it. Unless some manufacturers swing something to make it available with pc's around christmas, I don't think you'll see it until January.

You wont see it till Jan. there is nothing any Manufacturers can do/ M$ wont ginve them copies to sell before Jan 15th so they can start preloadin Vista. Other than that you are stuck with XP till after the holiday season.

I agree, any guesses as to how much market share that Apple gains over the holiday season? :P

They released it to the manufacturers. That way they can get all the drivers made and written for things like digital cameras, mice, video cards, etc.

Microsot Co-President, Jim Allchin, claims Windows Vista won't need antivirus.

Hard to imagine using Windows without antivirus.

As OI said it is so the software, hardware and the system manufacturers can get everything ready for its release so we have drivers, software and widespread support instead of speratic support as we did thru the Beta cycle.
I dont think you would want it to be out and not have a driver for your GFX card or not be able to run some software cause of incompatability.

If the user keeps UAC on they shouldnt need it. I have yet to get spyware or a virus, with actively trying to mind you, on Vista with UAC on. Without it i have been able to.
