An Australian trade publication, SmartHouse.com, published the report, quoting an unnamed Microsoft source. It said the software maker has pulled employees from its Xbox gaming division to rewrite up to 60 percent of the Vista code slated to be unveiled at the 2007 CES show in Las Vegas.More details over at Internet News.
Microsoft flatly denied the report. The company is working on security, testing and polish -– "not writing new code," according to a spokesperson, who added: Windows Vista is on track for the November launch of the enterprise version and the January 2007 release of the consumer version. "There aren't any Xbox developers moving over to the Windows Vista team."
