Windows Vista Release Slips to Q4 2006

Days after the first test version of Windows Vista was released to beta testers, rumors are now begining to circulate that the operating systems release date has been pushed back. At the Microsoft Financial Analyst Conference on Thursday a Microsoft official said the OS would not be available until the 2006 "holiday season". Earlier this summer Microsoft had planned on making Vista first available to consumers beginning mid-2006.

Will Poole, senior vice president of the client division of Microsoft, made mention of the purported delay in shipment during his presentation at the conference. However, no reason was given for the setback.

Microsoft has yet to make official the reported "pushback" in the Vista release date. Presumably, the operating system would hit store shelves sometime between the Thanksgiving and Christmas shopping season.
