    I love the quote on engadget
    "While we&#39;re certainly frustrated that we won&#39;t be able to get our Vista-on for the holidays, we&#39;re gonna try to put a positive spin on the situation and appreciate the fact that we now have a little longer to decide which of the <s>eight</s> six flavors of the new operating system we&#39;ll be dual-booting on our Macs."

    what the article forgot to say was:

    "we believe that Apple&#39;s Leopard OS, which should have a Developer Preview in mid August, will have some exciting new features we have to steal. We have devoted an extra block of development time so that we can get those features into vista.

    As you can see, we are still perfecting the Aquaesque UI that we blatently stole from Apple&#39;s OS X, and we are still in the process of migrating that to the ugly UI of vista.

    consumers wont be affected by this, as we are microsoft, and for some reason they keep buying our crappy software even tho it bites."

    We should run a poll on which Cat name MacOS X will have when a useable vista ships. I am pretty sure that it won&#39;t be a leopard.

    I wonder what theme song they&#39;ll use for its release. &#39;The Twelfth of Never&#39; is looking good at the moment.

    There&#39;s a song called &#39;Sleep by Windows&#39; on Gary Numan&#39;s Telekon album from the early 80&#39;s. That could be appropriate

    Everyone is aware that "Vista" means turkey or chicken in Romanian?

    Go figure.

    I read where VISTA will be Microsoft&#39;s last operating system - has anyone considered that they stil haven&#39;t published their first WORKING model. :P

    Geez and I was hoping to give Vista to my windoze using business partner for the Holidaze...
    Now I will have to just get him to switch. Damn&#33;&#33;&#33; <_<
