It looks like Windows Vista might be delayed again, this time by at least three months—if you believe research group Gartner, Inc. Why is this happening? "Too complex," say the Gartner analysts. They're saying we'll see Vista sometime in the second quarter of next year. Yikes, that could be June, 2007?! Says Gartner:
"Microsoft still wants to get it out as soon as possible, but slipping from January to March is nowhere near as bad as slipping from shipping before the holidays to after the holidays."
So far, Microsoft hasn't had anything to say about this soothsaying prognostication from the Gartner guys. We'll get a better idea of what's really going on as soon as Beta 2 of Vista is released sometime between now and the end of June of this year.
