Windows Vista has been on the minds of many for quite some time now. Every week we receive new bits of information on the operating system including delays, feature reductions, new builds, the massive amount of dollars being thrown behind its launch and how it will serve as a communications hub for a host of Windows Live services. Microsoft has even gone so far as to establish a design guide for new PCs to incorporate chic designs to complement the next generation operating system. But for all the talk, is the operating system really ready for prime time? Can Microsoft hit its January target which Bill Gates is 80% positive that they can achieve? Windows guru Paul Thurrott takes a look at the current state of Windows Vista development and gives his opinion on what is right and what is wrong with Vista.
