The Inquirer spoke with a couple of big OEMs and learned they will get Windows Vista before the end of the year:
This makes perfect sense as the big OEMs such as Del, HP or Lenovo which actually need an operating system to boost its Yule PC sales. Few buy OEM machines in January.
Ho ho ho Microsoft has officially said that it will delay the consumer version of Vista, and according to our well informed sources this might mean that the Vole delays the retail boxes but not the whole thing. Sources claim that Vista should come pre installed on many PCs for pre-Yule sales.
