ZD Net blogs Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system has gone gold:
The day has finally come: Windows Vista is going gold. And the public announcement that Windows Vista has been released to manufacturing is going to happen tomorrow, November 8, around 11 a.m. PST, sources close to the company are saying.

Microsoft's spokespeople aren't confirming, but it sounds like at least one official (Steve Riley, senior manager in Microsoft's security business unit) told Windows DevCon attendees in Las Vegas that November 8 is, indeed, the magic date.

One point to ponder, when listening to all the "Vista is done" rhetoric is what does "done" mean these days?
